Abstract

Although Dred Scott v. Sandford is one of the Supreme Court's most controversial decisions, it is not often taught or read. But its approach to constitutional interpretation is by no means outdated, and its historical importance has not diminished. So it seems a good example to consider.

Comments

Derived from the author's paper "Basic Rights and Constitutional Interpretation." Social Theory and Practice, vol. 16, no. 3, 1990, pp. 337–57.
