Nov. 2012 Issue of Law & History Review

Oops! I realized today that we never spotlighted the November 2012 issue of the Law & History Review. It was full of good stuff (and the lead article, by Christopher Waldrep, now seems even more timely). Here's the TOC:
Christopher Waldrep, "The use and abuse of the law: public opinion and United Methodist Church trials of ministers performing same-sex union ceremonies."

Phillip I. Ackerman-Lieberman, "Commercial forms and legal norms in the Jewish community of medieval Egypt."

Anne Fleming, "The borrower's tale: a history of poor debtors in Lochner era New York City."

Joseph P. Younger, "'Naturals of this Republic:' Slave law, sovereignty, and the legal politics of citizenship in the Rio de la Plata borderlands, 1845-1864."

H. Robert Baker, "The fugitive slave clause and the antebellum Constitution."
