This series of lectures were prepared by the author for delivery at Harvard University Law School, but he died before he had the opportunity to present them. They are an illuminating and thought-provoking exposition of the nature of law and legislation, expounding on the differences between the written and unwritten law. The entire field of human conduct is explored, starting with conduct and its regulation in primitive society. The exposition commences with the search for the answer to the question: What is law? It ventures into the areas of government and politics.About the Author:
James Coolidge Carter, 1827-1905, was an extremely distinguished and influential figure in the final decades of the nineteenth century and was recognized as a leader of the American bar. He was a national leader in the areas of legal practice, jurisprudence, and legal and political reform. It was speculated that President Grover Cleveland would likely have appointed him to be Chief Justice of the Supreme Court if not for concerns for his health. He was noted as an appellate advocate and argued some three dozen cases before the Supreme Court. He served as President of the American Bar Association, the New York State Bar Association, and the Association of the Bar of the City of New York. He championed historical jurisprudence in his writings, arguing strenuously against codification. He was also one of the nation's leading municipal reformers.
