New. $450. * The "American Blackstone." A monumental work of continuing relevance, this reprint edition is prefaced by a new critical introduction by Paul Finkelman, President William McKinley Distinguished Professor of Law and Public Policy, Albany Law School and David Cobin, Professor, Hamline University School of Law, St. Paul Minnesota. Tucker's Blackstone is a key resource for understanding how Americans viewed English common law in the years following the adoption of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Based on his lectures at the College of William and Mary, Tucker interprets Blackstone's often antidemocratic viewpoint in an American context. A strong proponent of the First Amendment, he elaborates a theory of free speech that is more expansive than in the English tradition. More recently, Tucker's Blackstone has been cited in numerous constitutional cases by the U.S. Supreme Court relating to "original intent." Reprint of the rare sole edition. "Tucker's Blackstone became a standard reference work for many American lawyers unable to consult a law library, especially those on the frontier. It is impossible to measure its impact on American law, but it is clear that sales were strongest in Virginia, as could be expected; it was also widely used in Pennsylvania and South Carolina." William H. Bryson, The Virginia Law Reporter Before 1800 102. Tucker's Blackstone has. Bookseller Inventory # 17150
