History has largely forgotten the writings, both public and private, of early nineteenth-century America's legal scholars. However, Ellen Holmes Pearson argues that the observers from this era had a unique perspective on the young nation and the directions in which its legal culture might go.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A fascinating book. The effort to describe and analyze how early nineteenth-century American legal writers understood American law is noteworthy and important. Pearson is a sympathetic and careful reader of this remarkable outpouring of American legal literature. "Remaking Custom" will likely restore to these often forgotten writers the reputation they once deservedly had.--Mary Sarah Bilder, Boston College School of Law, author of "The Transatlantic Constitution: Colonial Legal Culture and the Empire"
