Description: This survey of American legal history begins with the Emancipation Proclamation and ends near the present. Legal themes covered are related to major political, economic, and social developments that have shaped the U.S. since 1863: the civil war's outcome and abolition of slavery; the organization of an industrial economy; U.S. ascendancy in the world; and the social movements of the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
