Produktbeschreibung
""A Defense of the Majority in the House of Commons: On the Question Relating to General Warrants, in Answer to the Defense of the Minority"" is a political pamphlet written by Charles Lloyd and published in 1765. The book is a response to the defense put forth by the minority party in the House of Commons regarding the use of general warrants, which allowed for the arrest and detention of individuals without a specific warrant naming them. Lloyd argues in favor of the majority party's decision to condemn the use of general warrants, citing the importance of protecting individual rights and freedoms. He also critiques the minority party's defense, arguing that their arguments are flawed and do not adequately address the concerns raised by the use of general warrants. The book is a significant contribution to the debate over individual rights and government power in the 18th century, and provides valuable insight into the political climate of the time. It is a well-written and thoughtful analysis of an important issue, and remains relevant to contemporary discussions of civil liberties and government surveillance.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
