Editorial Reviews

Review

"More than two decades ago, Tushnet ignited the field of slave law studies with his provocative and thoughtful overview of the subject, "The American Law of Slavery, 1810-1860. Now he has given us the first book-length study of a classic American slave case. Comprehensive and insightful, it merits the attention of legal scholars, historians, and non-specialists alike." --Timothy S. Huebner, author of The Southern Judicial Tradition

From the Back Cover

"While losing neither objectivity nor moral compass, Mark Tushnet skillfully navigates the murky waters of Southern judicial and legal logic. His inspired study highly deserves close and serious attention."--Bertram Wyatt-Brown, author of The Shaping of Southern Culture: Honor, Grace, and War, 1760-1880s
