Harlan as Dissenter in Journal of Supreme Court History

05Dec07

The latest issue of the Journal of Supreme Court History (vol. 32, issue 2) is devoted to dissents and dissenters so naturally they have an article on John Marshall Harlan. Linda Przybyszewski wrote an article titled “The Dissents of John Marshall Harlan I,” although it primarily about his dissents in Plessey v. Ferguson and the Civil Rights Cases. She provides an interesting answer to the often asked question of how a former slave holder came to be such an advocate for civil rights, while also discussing some other opinions that do not seem so enlightened these days.
