The review concludes:
Rehabilitating Lochner does what it sets out to do very well. It places Lochner in its historical context, telling us where it came from, what it actually did, who attacked it, and what those people believed. Though published by an academic press, the book is readable and should be accessible for any intelligent lay reader. At the same time, it should be informative and provocative to legal scholars. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the topic.
