About the Book
In the first modern biography of Lord Mansfield (1705–1793), Professor Norman S. Poser details the life and times of the great 18th-century judge and statesman, whose legacy continues to have a unique influence on Anglo-American law and society. The son of a minor Scottish nobleman who skirted charges of treason, Mansfield rose through English society to become a member of its ruling aristocracy, confidential advisor to two kings, and friend to statesmen, poets, artists, actors, bishops, soldiers, and members of the nobility. His extraordinary political career – both before and during his unprecedented 32-year tenure as Chief
Justice of England – offers a portrait of a fascinating era.
Copies of Lord Mansfield (McGill-Queen’s University Press 2013) will be available for purchase.
