R. Blain Andrus

Unlike any other book you’ve read, this hysterical, scholarly look at the history of lawyers is not just an external account of lawyers: it puts you inside their heads. It’s a roller coaster ride through history, viewed from a lawyer’s perspective. Starting from Biblical times with the case of Adam and Eve v. The State of Innocence, through ancient Greece and Rome and medieval Europe, through Lincoln, Darrow, and O.J. Simpson, this book will provide you with a good sense of the “primal ooze” that gave rise to the first lawyer and the religious, cultural, philosophical, economic, and political forces that have preserved lawyers from extinction — at least so far.

Civil War Lawyers: Constitutional Questions, Courtroom Dramas, and the Men Behind Them Arthur T. Downey

2010, Hardcover, 454 pages, 6 x 9

Civil War Lawyers is a comprehensive and fascinating look at the underappreciated role of the law--and of lawyers--during the United States’ Civil War. Great Constitutional issues were addressed by the Supreme Court in tense courtrooms where individual lives were at stake. Presidents struggled with the legality of their actions, including questions on habeas corpus and military commissions that still have vital relevance today. Lawyers dominated public and political life during the first third of American history, and many of the lawyers prominent during the Civil War period were not only aware of each other professionally, but they had also tried cases with and against each other before the War.

Lincoln’s Counsel: Lessons from America’s Most Persuasive Speaker Arthur Rizer

2010, Hardcover, 264 pages, 6 x 9

Before Abraham Lincoln was called “Mr. President,” he was called “counselor” and “esquire.” Some consider him to be one of the nation’s greatest attorneys and, at the very least, an enormously persuasive speaker. He spent more years practicing law than any other president, and his years in the legal profession were essential to his eventual election to the Presidency. Through examples from Lincoln’s great speeches and closing arguments this book instructs you in the art of persuasion in two simple ways: by providing lessons from Lincoln’s career as a lawyer and politician, and then by analyzing those lessons and discussing how to apply them to your own life.
