New England’s legal history also benefits from several published comparative histories that transcend the boundaries of one colony. Daniel Cohen’s Pillars of Salt, Monuments of Grace (1993) on the literature of crime is only one of the most recent to take New England as a whole for its field of study. Likewise, Martha McNamara’s pioneering study, From Tavern to Courthouse (2004), on the physical structures of courthouses and courtrooms, is firmly rooted in the region. One of the strongest works that tackles the vexed issue of women’s property in an age when feme covert appeared to triumph over all is Marylynn Salmon’s Women and the Law of Property in Early America (1986), which remains a standard reference work not just for New England, but for all the colonies.
