Readings on the Influence of Christian Thought in Anglo-American Law
Second Edition
By: Jeffrey A. Brauch

This second edition is designed to further the quest to look beyond legal rules and institutions to the legal philosophies that shaped them. The overall purpose and most of the readings remain unchanged, but some readings have been updated to reflect recent developments in the law, including critical race theory and jury reforms. This new edition also addresses issues regarding international and constitutional law, considering the moral and legal arguments regarding preemptive war and whether transgendered individuals have a fundamental human right to change their sexual identity on their birth certificate. This broader focus recognizes that many clashes over legal worldview are taking place outside the realm of the common law.
