    Have you looked at Craig Green’s work on the Intellectual History of Judicial Activism? Qualitative, but ultimately more satisfactory, account.

  2. Corey Yung says:

    I hadn’t seen that. I never check Bepress for anything and it looks like Craig hasn’t put it up on SSRN. I definitely look forward to reading the article. Thanks.

    The final version of Professor Green’s article in the Emory Law Journal will be available next week. I’ll post a link to the blog.
