Maintains the tripartite structure of the 1st editions published in 1937: Judicial Function, Federal System, and Individual Rights. The volume captures the flower of the deferential/reverential view of the Constitution, just before it became one of the last of the Sacred Cows to be shown by circumstances to be long-overdue for change, not just study. Gives great credit to the Opinions of some of the most small-minded and unnecessarily self-protectively self-defeating writers on the planet. And then it only got worse, on a Court dominated by anti-intellectuals who the academics like Gunther finally had to recognize for what they were: hypocrites who were destroying the principles of the Constitution.
Gunther was a Jew among Germans raised in Czechoslavakia, with memories of his teachers referring to him as "Judensau". He graduated from Harvard Law School, magna cum laude, and began a teaching career. Included among his grateful and successful students, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, for whom he had predicted great things. Professor Gunther died age 75 in 2001, having been of great service on the campuses during the turbulent 60's and early 70's. ( )
