Much of the current reassessment of race, culture, and criminal justice in the nineteenth-century South has been based on intensive community studies. Drawing on previously untapped sources, the nine original papers collected here represent some of the best new work on how racial justice can be shaped by the particulars of time and place. Although each essay is anchored in the local, several important larger themes emerge across the volume--such as the importance of personality and place, the movement of former slaves from the capriciousness of "plantation justice" to the (theoretically) more evenhanded processes of the courts, and the increased presence of government in daily aspects of American life. Local Matters cites a wide range of examples to support these themes. One essay considers the case of a quasi-free slave in Natchez, Mississippi--himself a slaveowner--who was "reined in" by his master through the courts, while another shows how federal aims were subverted during trials held in the aftermath of the 1876 race riots in Ellenton, South Carolina. Other topics covered include the fear of black criminality as a motivation of Klan activity; the career of Thomas Ruffin, slaveowner and North Carolina Supreme Court Justice; blacks and the ballot in Washington County, Texas; the overturned murder conviction of a North Carolina slave who had killed a white man; the formation of a powerful white bloc in Vicksburg, Mississippi; agitation by black and white North Carolina women for greater protections from abusive white male elites; and slaves, crime, and the common law in New Orleans. Together, these studies offer new insights into the nature of law and the fate of due process at different stages of a highly racialized society.

NEW FIELD, NEW CORN is an anthology of research papers that explore a range of topics from the rich legal history of the state of Alabama and its influential legal and judicial figures. Contemporary photography and maps are featured as well. “New Field, New Corn presents eight new essays on Alabama legal history from the pre-Civil War era through the Civil Rights era. These elegant and novel chapters survey a broad spectrum, from economics, race, education, and professional concerns of lawyers, to plain old legal doctrine, to show how those variables affected the state’s development. These essays reveal why we need intensive studies of American law at the state and county level in the 19th and 20th centuries. For they demonstrate that law is embedded in our culture. These invite many other studies, from the county level on up, in other states, to demonstrate how law lies at the center of nation’s history. They reaffirm my faith that there are many, many fascinating stories left to tell about our nation’s journey towards fulfilling the promises of law.” — Alfred L. Brophy Judge John J. Parker Distinguished Professor of Law University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill Author, Reparations: Pro and Con (2006) and Reconstructing the Dreamland (2002) “Alabama legal history can be surprising. Usually, this history is identified with dominant one-party politics, slavery, racial segregation, and limited social welfare. University of Alabama Law School legal historian Paul Pruitt’s collection of young lawyers’ research reveals a new field. It extends out from legal subjects, embracing new perceptions of law in society across Alabama history. The collection rests on broad research. Lawyers working in diverse fields have produced Alabama legal history that sets a new standard.” — Tony Freyer University Research Professor of History and Law, Emeritus University of Alabama Author, Hugo L. Black and the Dilemma of American Liberalism (2007), and coauthor, Democracy and Judicial Independence (1996) The volume’s contents include: • Bryan K. Fair’s Foreword: “Critiquing Our Present, Interrogating Our Past” • Paul M. Pruitt, Jr.’s Introduction: “Alabama Legal History as a Field of Study” • Warren Hoffman: “Developments of the Enclosure Movement in Alabama: Disrupting the Free Roaming” • Paul Rand: “Flush Times in the Chancery: A Brief Note on the History of Equity and Trusts” • Helen Eckinger: “The Militarization of the University of Alabama” • Eddie Lowe: “Economic Growth in Blount County/Onteonta: Attorneys, Companies, and Cases” • Mike Dodson: “Pioneers in Alabama Legal History: A Firm Understanding of the History of Alabama” • Courtney Cooper: “A Man in a Boy’s Coat: The Evolution of Alabama’s Constitutions” • Deirdra Drinkard: “The Uniform Beneath the Robe” • Ellie Campbell: “The ‘Breakthrough Verdict’: Strange v. State” A compelling new addition to the Legal History & Biography Series from Quid Pro Books.

Closely examines on of the Supreme Court's most infamous decisions: that went far beyond one slave's suit for "freeman" status by declaring that ALL blacks--freemen as well as slaves--were not, and never could become, U.S. citizens, bringing an end to the 1820 Missouri Compromise, while also resulting in the outrage that led to the Civil War.
