KIRKUS REVIEW

A detailed review of the decisions of Chief Justice Harlan Stone during his long tenure of office in the Supreme Court, which is of interest chiefly to lawyers, legal scholars, and students of constitutional history. It lays emphasis on the ""liberalism"" of Justice Stone which grouped him with Justice Holmes, Brandeis and Cardo in viewpoint. It also stresses his realism as against pure legalism in the making of his decisions, and his progressive outlook as he dealt with the increasingly important fields of ""government in business"" and ""civil liberties"" in the modern world.
