Backstory and Context
Brandeis first gained public fame with his 1914 volume, "Other People's Money and How the Bankers Use It, " a scathing attack on corporate power. His appointment to the Supreme Court in 1916 by President Wilson was an unequivocal endorsement of liberal reform and the worth of the individual. He often stood with Justice Holmes against the Court majority opinions, proving "not only the right to dissent in America, but also that dissent can be constructive."
