Abstract:

During the 40 years from 1897 until 1937, the Supreme Court protected liberty of contract as a fundamental right, safeguarded by the Constitution. The Court declared unconstitutional various state and federal laws that abridged this liberty by denying contracts--maximum-hours laws, minimum-wage laws, business-licensing laws, housing-segregation laws, and compulsory-education laws--laws that interfered with individuals' liberty of contract.--From Intro. p. 1.
