This revised edition of Law and People in Colonial America will incorporate recent scholarship and encompass American Indians, the French, and Spaniards as people who--on the fringes of English settlement--raised interesting questions. Among them: how in legal terms did the English deal with "marginal"societies; how does this posture help us to understand English law and the changes the New World forced upon it; and how did these people on the outside themselves view English law?
From the Back Cover: How did American colonists transform British law into their own? What were the colonies' first legal institutions, and who served in them? Did the special issue of gender play a significant role? Why did early Americans develop a passion for litigation that continues to this day? In Law and People in Colonial America Peter Charles Hoffer tells the story of early American law from its beginnings in the British mainland colonies to its maturation in the crisis of the American Revolution.
