Editorial Reviews


?[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

Book Description

At a time when nostalgia for the Good War prevails, this collection of essays on the rule of law and the constitution during the Second World War demonstrates how major war can imperil the notion that public officials are constrained by law.
