It is not the purpose of this chapter to enter into a discussion of the philosophy of the relation of the States to the Federal Government, nor to give an exhaustive treatment of the cases here cited. It is proposed to show in outline the development and trend of the operation of the Fourteenth Amendment in its direct and positive restraint upon the several States within the past forty-three years. The attempt is made to set forth the different spheres of State activity affected and the various classes of laws which have been annulled in whole or in part.
