Editorial Reviews

Review

"[i]t will be of interest to those concerned about legal and political history. Those interested in state-building also will find this book quite valuable...Given the in-depth treatment provided to seven areas by the essays in this work, those topics are well covered...On the whole, the Ernst-Jew collection provides detailed coverage of several aspects of the law during World War II and shows how the administrative state was changed for all time. As America now experiences an undeclared "war on terrorism," those wondering about how the law will be changed by the current "war" (for lack of a better term) and how the justices' own feelings towards today's war will influence their jurisprudence would do well to read this book."-Law and Social Inquiry

"Ernst and Jew bring together scholarship about the war era that illustrates how major wars can imperil and transform the notion that public officials are constructed by law."-The Register of the Kentucky Historical Society
