The Due Process Revolution was the process, carried out mostly by the
Supreme Court under Chief Justice Earl Warren, of providing more due
process rights to criminal defendants and others. It involved, among other things the
"selective incorporation" of the Bill of Rights. This process required
the states to adhere to the Bill of Rights even as the federal
government did. The Due Process Revolution also added to the idea of
what due process was. It added, for example, the idea that people who
were arrested had to be read their rights (Miranda v. Arizona) before they could be interrogated.
