New. $49.95 * An influential work often cited by lawyers and judges in their attacks upon legislative power, offering a conservative bias in its constitutional analysis of the subject of police power. "This treatise far more clearly sustained and developed laissez faire constitutional principles than did that of Cooley, and it was second only to the work of the latter in the influence it was to exercise on bench and bar. Although Cooley may have anticipated the rise of laissez faire constitutionalism, Tiedeman most surely deserves credit for its crystallization into a fixed and pervading dogma." Jacobs, Law Writers and the Courts 59,62. Tiedeman [1857-1903] was a law professor and author known chiefly for this important treatise, and also State and Federal Control of Person and Property.
