Über diesen Titel:
During these years, the court heard key cases involving railroads, the Alaska gold rush, Chinese immigration, organized labor, and use of natural resources. Many of the decisions from this period foreshadowed issues that are with us today. Frederick also documents the court's part in Western development and in issues relating to World War I, Prohibition, New Deal legislation, and the evolving role of federal judges.
Frederick portrays the West's most important judicial institution with clarity and intelligence, reminding us that the evolution of the Ninth Circuit both reflected and affected the dramatic changes occurring in the West during the court's early years. This is a book that will appeal not only to lawyers, but to historians, sociologists, and general readers as well.
Über den Autor: David C. Frederick is a former law clerk to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Byron R. White and Judge Joseph T. Sneed, U.S. Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit. He is presently an associate in a Washington, D.C., law firm.
