Abraham Lincoln, constitutionalism, and equal rights in the Civil War era by Herman Belz( )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 1,797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Was Lincoln a dictator, albeit benign? Was he a revolutionary nationalist, casting aside constitutional forms and procedures and paving the way for a twentieth-century "imperial presidency"? Or was he a constitutional chief executive who, even in the nation's darkest hour of crisis, operated within the limits imposed by the Founding Fathers? Was Reconstruction a revolutionary repudiation of the Constitution, or a legitimate amendment thereof?

A new birth of freedom : the Republican Party and freedmen's rights, 1861 to 1866 by Herman Belz( Book )

16 editions published between 1976 and 2000 in English and held by 1,245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A New Birth of Freedom is an account of how laws, policies, and constitutional amendments defining and protecting the personal liberty and civil rights of the country's African American population were adopted during the Civil War. A study in legal and constitutional history, it complements and forms a necessary predicate to the social history of emancipation that is the principal focus of contemporary Civil War scholarship. The relevance of the legal dimension in the struggle for black freedom is attested by the observation that many slaves "learned the letter of the law so they could seemingly recite from memory" passages from congressional measures prohibiting the return of escaped slaves to disloyal owners and guaranteeing their personal liberty."--BOOK JACKET

4 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rule of law may be the most significant and influential accomplishment of Western political thought. Nowhere expressed yet evident throughout, the United States Constitution depends on this core concept, the first principle on which the American legal and political system was built. Made up of the various structural concepts embodied in the Constitution of the United States, constitutionalism comprises one of our most important first principles. The rule of law and constitutionalism are important concepts not because they are old, or unique, or exclusively ours for that matter, but because
