Joseph Story was among the leading American legal writers of all time. This treatise, first published in 1841, had an immediate impact on American case law. Until Story published his work, U.S. courts primarily accepted precedent established in England. "...for the most part, the American cases involved the acceptance by our courts of principles already worked out in England rather than the establishment of any conflicting American doctrines or the breaking of important new ground." - E. Merrick, Dodd Jr., American Business Association Law a Hundred Years Ago and Today. N.Y.U. Law III:257
