This revised edition of Law and People in Colonial America will incorporate recent scholarship and encompass American Indians, the French, and Spaniards as people who--on the fringes of English settlement--raised interesting questions. Among them: how in legal terms did the English deal with "marginal" societies; how does this posture help us to understand English law and the changes the New World forced upon it; and how did these people on the outside themselves view English law?

Preface
Acknowledgments
"That the Said Statutes, Lawes, and Ordinances May Be as Neere as Conveniently May, Agreeable to the Forme of the Lawes and Pollicy of England"
"And to the End that All Laws Prepared by the Governour and Provincial Council Aforesaid, May Yet Have the More Full Concurrence of the Free-Men of the Province"
"These Dirty and Ridiculous Litigations Have Been Multiplied in this Town, Till the Very Earth Groans and the Stones Cry Out"
"Just so th' Unletter'd Blockheads of the Robe; (Than Whom no Greater Monsters on the Globe); Their Wire-Drawn, Incoherent, Jargon Spin, Or Lug a Point by Head and Shoulders In"
"On What Principles, Then, on What Motives of Action, Can We Depend for the Security of our Liberties, of our Properties. . . of Life Itself?"
