The primary founder and guiding spirit of the Harvard Law School and the most prolific publicist of the nineteenth century, Story served as a member of the U.S. Supreme Court from 1811 to 1845. His attitudes and goals as lawyer, politician, judge, and legal educator were founded on the republican values generated by the American Revolution. Story's greatest objective was to fashion a national jurisprudence that would carry the American people into the modern age without losing those values.

Reprint of the only edition. Meigs [1852-1929] established his reputation with pioneering research on the antecedents of the American doctrine of judicial review. Much of his later work traced the doctrine's subsequent history. The Relation of the Judiciary and the Constitution is a summary of this scholarship, as well as a summary of work by other scholars who developed areas uncovered by his research. Although it is primarily a history, Meigs's study has a secondary agenda: to show how "the noisy minority" of an unchecked judiciary "lead[s] the country...to launch out on evil ways" (10). In this regard he anticipated the viewpoint of conservative critics today who denounce judges who "legislate from the bench."

This book examines the works of the political poets John Greenleaf Whittier and Ebenezer Elliott, drawing comparisons to contemporary hip hoppers who take their words from local newspapers and other discursive sources that they read, hear, and observe. Its focus on language as unbounded discourse makes this book a relevant and insightful demonstration in democratic pedagogy and in teaching for transformation.

Since Princeton College and Princeton Seminary were major radii of Realist influence, the conservative Presbyterianism headquartered there is an ideal choice for a case study in the American impact of Baconianism. Presbyterian thinkers, already committed to a synthesis of Protestant religion and Newtonian science, were afforded with additional means of elaborating a doxological version of natural science and of defending it against naturalism and other enemies of Christian faith.

A New York Times Notable Book of 1996 It was in tolling the death of Supreme Court Chief Justice John Marshall in 1835 that the Liberty Bell cracked, never to ring again. An apt symbol of the man who shaped both court and country, whose life "reads like an early history of the United States," as the Wall Street Journal noted, adding: Jean Edward Smith "does an excellent job of recounting the details of Marshall's life without missing the dramatic sweep of the history it encompassed."

America’s rise from revolutionary colonies to a world power is often treated as inevitable. But Charles N. Edel’s provocative biography of John Q. Adams argues that he served as the central architect of a grand strategy whose ideas and policies made him a critical link between the founding generation and the Civil War–era nation of Lincoln.

Excerpt from Diary of William Plumer Jacobs It is the story of a little boy in a great city who fell in love with all good things and who resolved to center his whole life upon obtaining them, and who did so. It is the story of a youth to whom a church, and an orphan age, and a college, and a library, and a printing office meant so much in the great city of Charleston, that he transplanted them to a wide place in the road which was Clinton of 1865. It is the story of an aged man whose faith, and love, and courage were sufficient to conquer sickness, and blindness, and deafness, and years, and death.

A Comfort For The Afflicted Christian

This work concerns dealing with affliction in a manner that glorifies God. Everyone deals with affliction. The question that remains is how well, as a Christian, you deal with it to the glory of God. Sometimes you will get weary. When you get weary you sometimes need a word of instruction, a word of encouragement, a word of comfort, and a word of caution. This is where William Plumer will give you all of these in a tender and pastoral manner. He takes God’s word and applies it to a number of afflictions that Christians regularly deal with such as the death of a loved one, those who speak hatefully against you, spiritual warfare, times of spiritual leanness, and one which many deal with daily, poor health. Not only will he Scripturally deal with those difficulties, but he also includes devotional writings of hymns and poems that are designed to lift the spirits of the saints. Many Christians have lived and died. Their experiences are often our experiences. Plumer shares them in this work. May this devotional instruction on affliction and weariness of soul be a great help to lift your spirit to have high thoughts of God and Christ even amidst daily tribulations. This work is not a scan or facsimile, has been carefully transcribed by hand being made easy to read in modern English, and has an active table of contents for electronic versions.

Although more than six hundred commentators have written on the Psalms, it has long been difficult to find a comprehensive treatment of this book of Scripture in one volume. Some expositions have excelled in scholarship, but, unlike the Psalter, in instructing the mind they have failed to exercise the heart. Dr Plumer's Commentary avoids this defect, the author believing that from the Psalms 'piety has derived more nourishment than from any other source,' and that his work should serve that same purpose. In 1211 pages he gives both exposition and doctrinal and practical remarks and presents in readable form a great wealth of material drawn from all the leading commentators who had gone before him. In the opinion of Dr John Macleod of Edinburgh, he succeeded in producing the best single volume on this book of Scripture.

The war severely injured the maritime and commercial economy and inflamed the difference in interests between the Northeast and the rest of the country, where agriculture was the mainstay. The author has combed sources near and far, bringing to life a drama that was international in scope ? but so local in impact.a"

A patriot by birth, John Quincy Adams's destiny was foreordained. He was not only "The Greatest Traveler of His Age," but his country's most gifted linguist and most experienced diplomat. John Quincy's world encompassed the American Revolution, the War of 1812, and the early and late Napoleonic Age. As his diplomat father's adolescent clerk and secretary, he met everyone who was anyone in Europe, including America's own luminaries and founding fathers, Franklin and Jefferson. All this made coming back to America a great challenge. But though he was determined to make his own career he was soon embarked, at Washington's appointment, on his phenomenal work abroad, as well as on a deeply troubled though loving and enduring marriage. But through all the emotional turmoil, he dedicated his life to serving his country. At 50, he returned to America to serve as Secretary of State to President Monroe. He was inaugurated President in 1824, after which he served as a stirring defender of the slaves of the Amistad rebellion and as a member of the House of Representatives from 1831 until his death in 1848. In The Remarkable Education of John Quincy Adams, Phyllis Lee Levin provides the deeply researched and beautifully written definitive biography of one of the most fascinating and towering early Americans.
