The Patrons of Husbandry—or the Grange—is the longest-lived US agricultural society and, since its founding shortly after the Civil War, has had immeasurable influence on social change as enacted by ordinary Americans. The Grange sought to relieve the struggles of small farmers by encouraging collaboration. Pathbreaking for its inclusion of women, the Grange is also well known for its association with Gilded Age laws aimed at curbing the monopoly power of railroads.In Essentials, Unity takes as its focus Grange founder Oliver Kelley and his home organization in Minnesota. Jenny Bourne draws upon numerous historical records to present a lively picture of a fraternal organization devoted to improving the lot of farmers but whose legacies extend far beyond agriculture. From struggles over minimum wage, birth control, and environmental regulation to the conflicts surrounding the Affordable Care Act, and from lunch-counter sit-ins to Occupy Wall Street, the Grange has shaped the very notion of collective action and how it is deployed even today. As this compact book so effectively illustrates, the history of the Patrons of Husbandry exposes the classic tension between the desires for achieving overall economic success and determining how the spoils are split.

Constitutional Law in Context puts major constitutional developments into historical perspective by helping readers see how doctrinal developments were shaped by historical context and how historical developments affecting one doctrine often influenced other doctrines as well. Obvious examples include changes in commerce clause doctrine, substantive due process, and law related to race and gender. The chapter on incorporation shows how the framers of the amendment were influenced by denials of civil liberties that occurred during the crusade against slavery. The book illustrates the development of constitutional law over time, so that changes in the law can be related to changes in society. It reminds readers of that related changes often occur across a range of doctrinal ideas; for example, parallel changes occur in both commerce clause and substantive due process doctrine as a result of changes during the New Deal. Decisions relevant to race discrimination involve not only equal protection, but also the reading of the commerce clause as illustrated by the Supreme Court's Heart of Atlanta decision. This 2-volume set also contains materials on constitutional decision-making outside of the Supreme Court. These include materials on the Clinton impeachment, examples from free speech history, and state cases interpreting state constitutions. Finally, it is designed to assist students in understanding and formulating constitutional arguments. The authors identify and discuss forms of constitutional argument—such as arguments based on text, history, or structure—and provide charts and diagrams to assist students in understanding the logical structure of constitutional analysis.
