This revised edition of "Law and People in Colonial America" will incorporate recent scholarship and encompass American Indians, the French, and Spaniards as people who--on the fringes of English settlement--raised interesting questions. Among them: how in legal terms did the English deal with "marginal"societies; how does this posture help us to understand English law and the changes the New World forced upon it; and how did these people on the outside themselves view English law?
