Constitutional History, Politics, McLaughlin


An unusually nice copy of a scarce title, this is THE COURTS THE CONSTITUTION AND PARTIES, a study in constitutional history and politics written by Andrew C. McLaughlin, University of Chicago. It was published in 1912 by the University of Chicago Press. A discussion of cardinal principles and facts in American constitutional history, McLaughlin features five articles: The first deals with the origin of the principle that courts can declare laws void. The second and third treat vital institutions that came into existence as popular government developed the significance of political parties and their relationship to popular government.The fourth article discusses the changing theories of political philosophy, furnishing foundations for differing theories concerning the nature of the union. The fifth shows that American legal order took its rise in the theory of compact and of individual rights and the in belief that imperial order itself should rest on law. The 299-page hardbound book is in Very Good condition, although it is ex lib with the usual library markings. There are some very minor areas of wear to the edge/corners and spine ends. Inside pages have no apparent defects. (5584)
