Summary
In 1973, a group of California lawyers formed a non-profit, public-interest legal foundation dedicated to defending conservative principles in court. Calling themselves the Pacific Legal Foundation, they declared war on the U.S. regulatory state-the sets of rules, legal precedents, and bureaucratic processes that govern how Americans do business. They believed that the government's growing size and increasingly complex regulations threatened the U.S. economy and infringed on property rights, and they filed a series of lawsuits challenging the government's power to regulate. In doing so, they inspired spin-off legal foundations across the country. Jefferson Decker's The Other Rights Revolution explains how a little-known collection of lawyers and politicians tried to bring liberal government to heel by initiating legal battles over property rights, preservation, and the environment. By uncovering the history behind conservative mobilization in the courts, Decker offers a new interpretation of the Reagan-era right and the emergence of modern conservatism. Book jacket
