Description: &"Why . . . did the [Warren] Court refuse to make minimal subsistence a fundamental right or poverty a suspect class? Bussiere argues that the explanation lies not only in the constellation of external forces pressuring the Court but also in the Court&'s institutional limits. . . . Bussiere&'s study reveals the rich possibilities of the new institutionalism. . . . Careful historical studies, such as Bussiere&'s, suggest that welfare policies are not determined by the economic and ideological pressures of capitalism alone. They are also the product of contingent factors such as litigation, political opportunism, social movements, and the evolution of complex patterns of institutionalization.&" &-Frank Munger, Law and Society Review
