    Having written extensively on various aspects of the American constitutional order, Edward S. Corwin is considered a leading constitutional scholar of the twentieth century. Alpheus Mason described Corwin’s writings as ?sources of learning and understanding?hallmarks to emulate and revere.” The ?Higher Law” Background of American Constitutional Law is of unique value in connecting the Western European experience?from the classical world, the Middle Ages, and the seventeenth-century thought of Coke and Locke?to the American founding. This renowned work provides a bold and accurate outline of the tradition behind the ?higher law” of the United States and places in historical context the political philosophy underlying the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution. This volume addresses questions such as: ? Where did the idea of a ?higher law” originate? ? How has it been able to survive and in what transformations? ? What special forms of it are of particular interest for historians and political theorists? ? How was it brought to America and wrought into the American system of government? As Clinton Rossiter notes in his prefatory note, ?No one can come away from reading [Higher Law] without realizing how much we in America are part of Western civilization. The men we meet in the pages of this essay?Demosthenes, Sophocles, Aristotle, Cicero, Seneca, Ulpian, Gaius, John of Salisbury, Isidore of Seville, St. Thomas Aquinas, Bracton, Fortescue, Coke, Grotius, Newton, Hooker, Pufendorf, Locke, Blackstone?all insisted that the laws by which men live can and should be the ?embodiment of essential and unchanging justice,’ and we may salute them respectfully as founding fathers of our experiment in ordered liberty.” In this volume Corwin demonstrates how the concept of a higher law developed and was understood by the leading thinkers of the American Revolutionary period as well as how the ideal of the higher law impacted the creation of the American Constitution. Students, scholars, and general interested readers of constitutional law and political theory will find inspiration in the pages of The ?Higher Law” Background of American Constitutional Law. Edward S. Corwin (1878?1963) served as the McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University from 1908 to 1946.

    It’s like gossip—what woman wouldn’t want to share all those little unexpected and invariably hilarious things men do that drive them crazy? Here, from hundreds of women (first names only, please), comes one juicy detail after the next, and it’s far beyond who left the toilet seat up: “He used coupons to pay for our anniversary dinner.” —Dolly, New York, NY “Every night, settling in, he grunts. I lie there waiting for him to quiet down. He sighs a long sigh and groans the same words every single night: ‘Oh, bed, bed, bed, bed, bed. Oh, bed, bed, bed, bed, bed. Oh, bed, bed, bed . . .’”—Ellen, Cleveland, OH Now, reissued with a fresh new cover that will heighten its appeal as the perfect impulse gift for any woman with a man in her life.
