John Fabian Witt. Lincolnís Code : the laws of war in American history. Free Press, 2012.

KF7210.W58 2012

 

In the fateful closing days of 1862, three weeks before Emancipation, the administration of Abraham Lincoln commissioned a code setting forth the laws of war for the armies of the United States. The code announced standards of civilized conduct in wartime concerning issues such as torture, prisoners of war, civilians, spies, and slaves. The code Lincoln approved ultimately shaped the course of the Civil War. Wittís engrossing exploration of the dilemmas at the heart of the laws of war is a prehistory of our own era. Lincolnís Code is the haunting and inspiring story of an idea in American history: the idea that conduct in war can be regulated by law.

 

 

Holly J. McCammon. The U.S. women's jury movements and strategic adaptation : a more just verdict. Cambridge University Press, 2012. KF8977.M33 2012

 

When women won the vote in the United States in 1920 they were still routinely barred from serving as jurors, but some began vigorous campaigns for a place in the jury box. This book tells the story of how women mobilized in fifteen states to change jury laws so that women could gain this additional right of citizenship. A comparison of the more strategic women's jury movements with those that were less strategic shows that the former built coalitions with other women's groups, took advantage of political opportunities, and had past experience in seeking legal reforms.
