This early academic work on the fourteenth amendment is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It contains a study on the history of the fourteenth amendment and its appearance before congress. This is a fascinating work and thoroughly recommended for anyone interested in American political history. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
