I am very happy to introduce Al Brophy, University of Alabama School of Law, as the Legal History Blog's very first guest blogger. Al needs no introduction among law bloggers and legal historians. He has blogged regularly at Property Prof Blog. Al teaches Administrative Law, Property and Legal History at Alabama, where he has been since 1994. He has two books, both from Oxford University Press: Reconstructing the Dreamland: The Tulsa Riot of 1921: Race, Reparations, and Reconciliation (2002) and Reparations: Pro and Con (2006). He is also the Book Review Editor of the Law and History Review, the leading United States journal in legal history. More on Al's publications and other helpful links are here.
