Constitutional Revolution

Barry Cushman and G. Edward (Teddy) White agree on at least this much, namely, that the “constitutional revolution” of the early twentieth century cannot be satisfactorily explained as a short term judicial response to external political pressures generated by the New Deal.  In a six-page, single-spaced summary, describe how each does account for it. This paper is due no later than the end of class, our last day of instruction.
