dc.description.abstract The genius of Thomas Hennings lay in his fundamental attachment to justice, his constant emphasis on the widest limits for individual freedom, and with his realistic approach to the need for order in American society. The limits of this study preclude more than passing consideration of other significant aspects of Hennings' public life, even of his important contributions to the advancement of civil rights and racial equality. Although the phrase "civil rights" at times has been taken to include "civil liberties," in this work it seems preferable, for the sake of clarity, to restrict it to "equality among citizens."
