Summary, etc.:
Explores the issues before the Court from the aftermath of the Civil War through the 1930s. This was a period of unprecedented economic growth as the nation industrialized, but was also a time of unregulated work conditions - the Court found itself squarely in the middle of what was almost class warfare.
