|Publication Year:||2017||Title:||The Lawyers Who Made America|
|ISBN:||9781509906369||Author:||Anthony Arlidge (author)|
|No other nation's creation, both politically and socially, owes such a debt to lawyers as the United States of America. This book traces the story of that creation through the human lives of those who played important parts in it: amongst others, of English lawyers who established the form of the original colonies; of the Founding Fathers, who declared independence and created a Constitution; of Abraham Lincoln, Woodrow Wilson, Justices of the Supreme Court and finally Barack Obama. Even Richard Nixon features, if only as a reminder that even the President is subject to the law. The author combines his wide legal experience and engaging writing style to produce a book that will enthral lawyers and laymen alike, giving perhaps a timely reminder of the importance of the rule of law to American democracy.|

|Author Biography||Anthony Arlidge has been a Queen's Counsel for over thirty five years, appearing in many high profile cases. He has submitted written amicus briefs to the Supreme Court of the United States and the Santa Monica Court of Appeals. A lifelong interest in legal history led him to co-author Magna Carta Uncovered in 2014 and in turn to the present work, which demonstrates, amongst other things, the influence of the British definitions of liberty on the American Constitution.|
