The government did not achieve this primary objective, but through decades of litigation it did force the passage of a realistic coal-land law and develop precedents for its application. Using century-old photographs and copious documentation, Nancy J. Taniguchi creates a legal history of land fraud in Utah's turn-of-the-century coal fields that intertwines national, regional, and local events. Necessary Fraud transcends parachialism to become a compelling exposition on the era of progressive reform. ; Legal History of North America; Vol. 3; 336 pages; Signed by Author
