UNITED STATES OF AMERICA: A STUDY IN INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION.

Scott, James Brown


Item #: 14075

Pages: xix,650p.
Published: Union; Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.; 2001.

Subjects: CONSTITUTIONAL LAW, INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS, LEGAL HISTORY

With an extensive appendix of source readings. Scott presents a detailed and comprehensively documented history of the American Constitution from its roots in the Mayflower Compact and other colonial associations through the Eighth Amendment. It can be read in this regard as a survey history. His study is especially interesting, however, as a political document written to address the effects of the First World War. Scott wrote this book for a European audience, hoping that his analysis of the Constitution would influence the creation of an international organization of states governed by a "Court of Nations" modeled on the American Supreme Court. As such, he emphasizes the Constitution's role as an agent of peace and cooperation. Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. Distributed by William S. Hein & Co., Inc.
