TOC for Riel's Defence

Nicole O'Byrne of the University of New Brunswick Faculty of Law has drawn my attention to the Table of Contents for Riel's Defence, ed. by Hans V. Hansen, about which I posted the other day.

Nicole kindly sent me pics of the TOC taken from her phone, but I thought a cut and paste would be more readable on the blog.

As you can see, it adds considerably to the description offered by the publisher. Of special interest to legal historians are Desmond Morton's essay on the historical context of the trial and Nicole O'Byrne's own contribution on Riel's constitutional thought.
