Editorial Reviews


• Shows how the Fuller Court paved the way for powerful administrative agencies through a set of decisions called the Insular Cases

• Discusses the Court's handling of private law cases with regard to patents, copyrights, and bankruptcy, and the affinity of those cases with its constitutional rulings

• Compares the impact of the Fuller Court to that of the preceding Waite Court and the following White Court

• Places the work of the Fuller Court in historical context and examines the economic and social changes that were transforming U.S. society at the end of the 19th century

• Provides an analysis of the historical impact and continuing legacy of the Fuller Court's decisions in the areas of federalism, protection of liberty, and the rights of property owners

"This is one in a fourteen-volume series about the various eras of the U.S. Supreme Court . . . Like the other volumes, this one is written by an academic with extensive knowledge and prior public scholarship about the Supreme Court era covered in the book . . . does a good job laying out both the traditional (negative) and revisionist understandings of the Fuller Court."



"[A] lucidly written reference guide . . . Ely ably sets this court in historical context and makes clear that it was entirely in keeping with the tradition of previous courts and the conservative temper of the Gilded Age . . . This guide will be a valuable resource for academic and large public libraries."

Book Description

During the "Gilded Age" and the rise of the modern U.S. economy, robber barons achieved unprecedented levels of wealth while millions were well below the poverty line and cities were teeming with crime and filth. The Fuller Court led the country through this controversial chapter in the history of the Supreme Court.
