Joseph Story's famous and influential review of the origins, influences, and early interpretations of the Constitution is now presented in the author's own 1833 Abridged Edition—considered the most useful and readable version of this important work, written by the Supreme Court's youngest Justice. No other ebook version offers the accessible abridged work, and in proper digital format no less. The Quid Pro 'Legal Legends' edition adds a new introduction by Kermit Roosevelt III.
Story, recognized today as one of the United States' most influential legal scholars and jurists, wrote his landmark treatise before the Civil War—describing federalism, states' history, freedoms, courts, and constitutional structure. He abridged it into this usable book. Adding a 2013 Foreword by constitutional scholar Kermit Roosevelt III of the University of Pennsylvania Law School, the quality Quid Pro Books edition features active Contents, proper NOOKbook formatting, careful proofreading from the original book, and embedded pagination from the original, for continuity of referencing and citation. No other ebook version has these features, or the modern introduction by Professor Roosevelt.
