From Chaos to Continuity analyzes the evolution of Louisiana's judicial system from its colonial roots to the disruption of the courts during the American Civil War. This book is the first to explain the complicated processes of creating a court system that integrated two very different systems of law: common law and civil law. Fernandez succeeds in portraying the Americanization of a state in the nineteenth century and in linking Louisiana's legal system to the United States' legal system, a relationship historians typically overlook.
