Summary
How did American colonists transform British law into their own? What were the colonies' first legal institutions, and who served in them? Did the special issue of gender play a significant role? Why did early Americans develop a passion for litigation that continues to this day? In Law and People in Colonial America Peter Charles Hoffer tells the story of early American law from its beginnings in the British mainland colonies to its maturation in the crisis of the American Revolution
