The Stone Court isMoreThe Stone Court Played a vital role in the history of the Great Depression, World War II, and Franklin D. Roosevelts presidency. The Court also provided a bridge to the new civil liberties jurisprudence of the Warren Court. The Stone Court is devoted to this period in the Supreme Courts history. This volume offers concise coverage of the Courts decisions- discusses each of the Courts eleven justices individually- provides supporting background information and includes an annotated bibliography and a detailed listing of Internet sources.- The Stone Court reveals that the Court gave its approval to an expansion of executive powers and also solidified the evolution of judiciary self-restraint - the deference of the judiciary to the elected branches. Perhaps the Courts most lasting legacy was the expansion of constitutionally protected rights, including the laying of the foundation for subsequent Court rulings on segregation and discrimination.
