New. $19.95 * Minor [1869-1923] was an author, publicist, and teacher of law at the University of Virginia. Minor was a pioneer in private international law or the conflict of laws. Here Minor presents a thorough overview of both government in general and the relationship of states to the federal government. Anyone interested in the question of states' rights debate that remains ongoing will find much of value in Minor's analysis of the legal status of the states and federal government under the Constitution. After developing the basic features of government, Minor elaborates upon the States Rights and Nationalistic schools of thought, drawing upon numerous Supreme Court cases and the writings of Story, de Tocqueville, Webster, Calhoun, Madison, and others.
