First Edition, third printing (1st ed., 1876, repr. 1879). lx, 741 pp. Contemporary (original?) leather. Spine darkened, front joint severed. First two pages loose. Corners of covers worn. Else Very Good. Suitable for rebacking. See Linda K. Kerber, No Constitutional Right To Be Ladies: Women and Obligations of Citizenship (New York: Hill and Wang, 1998). 'Kerber turns to the work of nineteenth-century American tax-law and constitutional-law theorists Thomas M. Cooley, Judge John Dillon, and E. R. A. Seligman. In their influential tax treatises (published in 1876, 1872, and 1895, respectively), she notes theories of taxation that emphasize sovereignty and finds them to be implicitly hostile to the claims of the woman suffragists. . Also, I cannot agree with Kerber's reading of Judge Cooley's treatise. I think Kerber is correct in identifying Cooley's 1876 tax treatise as an important source of opposition to the theory that there was a constitutionally-required reciprocity between taxation and representation that could be enforced by the courts. But I am not sure that he was quite the villain that he appears to be in her reading. . Cooley was well-known for his explicit views on the question of the reciprocity of taxation and representation. Elsewhere in his 1876 treatise he developed a twofold answer that became the authoritative view on the question. It was adopted even by those who, like the Christian socialist Richard T. Ely, firmly rejected Cooley's exchange theory of taxation. . Then as now, Judge Cooley has been regarded as the leading constitutional scholar of his time. His interpretation of the reciprocity question effectively severed the 'no taxation without representation' argument from constitutional theory and placed it beyond the reach of the courts into the realm of political theory. Whether he sought to contain the use of the reciprocity argument by business corporations, which were at that time claiming other rights of citizenship, is an interesting question' (Review of Kerber's book by Ann F. Thomas, New York Law School, for H-Law, June, 1999, with many reference's to Cooley's book). The 1886 second edition of this book has been reprinted by Lawbook Exchange, Ltd., who calls it 'an important work on tax law'; it also reprinted both the 1st and 5th editions of his A Treatise on the Constitutional Limitations Which Rest Upon the Legislative Powers of The States of the American Union (1868, 1883), as well as his The General Principles of Constitutional Law in the United States of America (1880); the 1891 2nd ed. was reprinted by another firm. The Thomas M. Cooley Law School is in Lansing, Mich. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 16308
