5.0 out of 5 stars An important work for modern liberals., January 18, 2000
This review is from: The Progressive Assault on Laissez Faire: Robert Hale and the First Law and Economics Movement (Hardcover)
This is an essential book for understanding the major changes in legal theory of the progressive era. The change from classical liberalism to modern progressive liberalism was profound, and required the abolition of a number of myths presumed by law and the judiciary. These myths have since been resurrected by the libertarians, and it is enlightening to see the satisfying reasons why they were rejected so long ago. It's easy to tell how threatened libertarians feel about this by the vehemence of their attacks.
College-level reading, and not for those with short attention spans.
