During his long tenure on the U.S. Supreme Court JohnMarshall Harlan wrote numerous dissenting opinions oneverything from civil rights to the federal income tax.Though many aspects of his dissents gained majorities afterhis death, such as in civil rights cases (1883) and Plessyv. Ferguson (1896). Viewed as a whole his emphasis on thesocial consequences of decisions rather than their adherenceto abstract legal principles pointed the way toward the workof Pound and Llewellyn. Clark offers an excellentintroduction to Harlan's doctrines regarding civil rights,the suability of states, impairment of the obligation ofcontracts, interstate and foreign commerce, and other topicsthat is valuable for its balance of summary andinterpretation.
