Ransom's book is grounded in the Progressive movement'sbelief that courts are a barrier to positive social change.In order to break this barrier he argues for the applicationof the "due process" clause of the Fourteenth Amendment ofthe Federal Constitution, which is also incorporated inseveral state constitutions, to all decisions by statecourts affecting the general welfare of citizens, such aslabor and consumer protection. By granting enforcement powerto legislatures, the instrument of "majority rule", reformswithin a State may be secured against intervention by itsjudiciary.Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S.
