Editorial Reviews

Review

"An exemplary case study of the events leading up to the undeservedly obscure Supreme Court decision in Ableman v. Booth (1859)... Baker lays out the complex legal proceedings with admirable clarity." - Mark V. Tushnet, Harvard Law School "The Rescue of Joshua Glover is an important new examination of how American constitutional law and popular culture intersected in the antebellum era.... A valuable case study of the ways in which the Constitution was reshaped outside of the courts as well as inside of them." - Daniel W. Hamilton, author of The Limits of Sovereignty"
