Prestatehood Legal Materials is a one-stop guide to the history and development of law in the U.S. and the change from territory to statehood. Unprecedented in its coverage of territorial government, this set identifies a wide range of available resources from each state to reveal the under-lying legal principles that helped form the United States.In this two-volume work, nearly 70 of the nation's foremost legal research professionals were tapped to share their wealth of knowledge to the research community. It provides the reader with brief overviews of state histories from colonization to acceptance into the U.S. It also shows how foreign countries controlled the laws of the territories and eventually broke away.
