In this second installment of G. Edward White's sweeping history of Law in American History from the colonial era to the present, White, covers the period between 1865-1929, which encompasses Reconstruction, rapid industrialization, a huge influx of immigrants, the rise of Jim Crow, the emergence of an American territorial empire, World War I, and the booming yet xenophobic 1920s.
As in the first volume, he connects the evolution of American law to the major political, economic, cultural, social, and demographic developments of the era. To enrich his account, White draws from the latest research from across the social sciences-economic history, anthropology, and sociology-yet weave those insights into a highly accessible narrative.
Along the way he provides a compelling case for why law can be seen as the key to understanding the development of American life as we know it.
Volume 1 From the Colonial Years Through the Civil War, was published in March 2012. Isbn 9780195102475
