In "Signposts," Sally E. Hadden and Patricia Hagler Minter have
assembled seventeen essays, by both established and rising
scholars, that showcase new directions in southern legal history
across a wide range of topics, time periods, and locales. The
essays will inspire today's scholars to dig even more deeply into
the southern legal heritage, in much the same way that David
Bodenhamer and James Ely's seminal 1984 work, "Ambivalent Legacy,"
inspired an earlier generation to take up the study of southern
Contributors to "Signposts" explore a wide range of subjects
related to southern constitutional and legal thought, including
real and personal property, civil rights, higher education, gender,
secession, reapportionment, prohibition, lynching, legal
institutions such as the grand jury, and conflicts between bench
and bar. A number of the essayists are concerned with transatlantic
connections to southern law and with marginalized groups such as
women and native peoples. Taken together, the essays in "Signposts"
show us that understanding how law changes over time is essential
to understanding the history of the South.
