Assessing Chief Justice William Rehnquist’s Court

Professor Chemerinsky’s interesting article shows—sometimes expressly, more often indirectly—why periodization is one of the recurrent issues in historiography. His article blends an evaluation of Chief Justice Rehnquist’s contributions to constitutional law with a more extended discussion of the changes in constitutional law that occurred during William Rehnquist’s tenure as Chief Justice. In this comment I want to focus primarily on the second theme, though with some attention to the first.
