"Persuasive. A welcome addition."
--"The Journal of Legal History"

"A masterly exposition of the complex details of Holmes' Supreme Court work."
--"The Core Review"

In this work, H.L. Pohlman calls for a new interpretation of Holmes as a moderate defender of free speech, and provides a window into Holmes' basic understanding of American constitutionalism. Pohlman argues that Holmes played a crucial role in the development of the idea that the Constitution is a living entity, an idea that differed radically from nineteenth-century antecedents.
