Vital to economic and personal liberty, this right has been continuously diminished by the countrys regulatory and welfare state. Beginning in 1897 with the Supreme Courts historic Lochner decision, the Court safeguarded this right for 40 years by declaring that laws that interfered with the freedom of people to bargain over the terms of their own contracts were unconstitutional.

Then in 1937, as part of the New Deal, the Court abandoned its protection for the liberty of contract. This book rediscovers this lost right, identifying the foundations and nature of the Courts Lochner-era legal theories and decisions and shatters myths that scholars have created about this era and subject.
