New. $80. * American courts took a keen interest in union and labor issues during the opening decades of the twentieth century. Lochner v. New York (1905) and Adair v. U.S. (1908) are among the many landmark cases argued at this time. Groat offers a valuable contemporary perspective on these developments. Restricting his focus to "principles and problems that are still unsettled," Groat examines "the political economic and social principles that guide the courts" (Preface, v).
