The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd., 2004 - 264
A collection of important writings that had a profound effect on the debates that led to the Civil War. The Virginia Resolutions were written by James Madison [1751-1836] and adopted by the Virginia legislature in 1798, the Kentucky Resolutions were written by Thomas Jefferson [1743-1826] and adopted by the Kentucky legislature in 1798. Both opposed the Alien and Sedition Acts and initiated a debate about the respective powers of the federal government and states. This edition collects these three works, and adds the texts of the Alien and Sedition acts, comments from other states and relevant extracts from Madison's letters. [vii]-xvi, -264 pp.
