Professor Mirow has published “The Age of Constitutions in the Americas” in 32 Law & History Review (2014). The brief article serves to introduce and to contextualize Linda Colley’s article “Empires of Writing: Britain, America and Constitutions, 1776-1848” that appears in the same volume.
“My work aimed to put Colley’s article into an historiographical context that emphasizes the wider phenomenon of constitution making throughout Europe and the Americas in the period of the U.S. Constitution. I was so happy to be invited to write the piece. It was more challenging than I had expected, but Colley’s work was a great inspiration for my contribution,” said Mirow. Linda Colley is the Shelby M.C. Davis 1958 Professor of History at Princeton University. The official journal of the American Society for Legal History, the Law & History Review is peer-reviewed and published by Cambridge University Press.
