Abstract

Anyone who heard Professor Mooney present his article on Matthew Deady knows of Mooney's unusual success in combining erudition with clarity, and close textual analysis with the development of broad contextual themes. It was probably less obvious at first hearing that this study of federal judge Deady, and his responses to anti-Chinese activity in the early years of Oregon's tatehood, is pathbreaking in several respects. The chance to read Mooney's study in its entirety and to reflect upon it confirms and enhances my initial impression of Mooney's success in crafting a significant contribution to legal history.
