Note Includes bibliographical references and index
From textual originalism to modern judicial power -- Modern judicial power and the process/restraint tradition -- The return of originalist analysis in the Warren Court era -- At the crossroads : the originalist idea in post-Warren Court politics and jurisprudence -- Raoul Berger and the restoration of originalism -- Originalism in the era of Ronald Reagan -- Robert Bork and the trial of originalism -- Originalism in the 1990s : the transformation of academic theory and the limitations of practice
This book explains how the debate over originalism emerged from the interaction of constitutional theory, U.S. Supreme Court decisions, and American political development. Refuting the contention that originalism is a recent concoction of political conservatives like Robert Bork, Johnathan O'Neill asserts that recent appeals to the origin of the Constitution in Supreme Court decisions and commentary, especially by Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, continue an established pattern in American history
