The first authoritative interpretation of the U.S. Constitution!

 

William Rawle, an early American lawyer, wrote one of the most important commentaries on the United States Constitution. Rawle covers a variety of topics related to the Constitution including Presidential powers, state jurisdiction and rights, remarks on Cicero’s views on Roman Law, slave trade, personal freedoms, taxation, and the art of making a treaty. In fact, Rawle’s views on treating making spurred many important books including Charles Butler’s ‘Treating Making Power in the United States’.

 

Howes’ account of this work is perhaps the most telling of its importance:

 

“First authoritative interpretation, in which was admitted the abstract right of state secession. These views exerted a profound influence on Southern political thought.”

 

Allibone notes that this work should be ‘carefully read’, ‘studied or consulted by the English reader’, and is ‘an excellent work’.
