The book has contributions from numerous distinguished history and law professors and practicing attorneys of the period. It provides short and articulate encyclopedic style entries which capture the colour, richness and complexity of the topics covered. The book's multidisciplinary approach will make it an ideal library reference resource for scholars and students of law, as well as a valuable addition to any legal collection.
