After serving on the benches of the Dakota Territory andthe Missouri Supreme Court, Bliss finished his career as thefirst dean of the law department of the University ofMissouri. His fascinating Of Sovereignty tries to balancethe argumentative excesses of both advocates of states'rights and of federal supremacy. In a rigorously arguedthesis that discusses Austin, Cooley and Lieber at length,Bliss maintains that the term sovereignty had been sooverused that it had lost its meaning. In the endsovereignty belongs to the Almighty alone; earthly sub-divisions of this power can only be based on justice andreason.Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S.
