Details

This study focuses on two critical figures in late eighteenth-century America—the physician Benjamin Rush and the journalist William Cobbett— as they clashed in one of the most important trials of post-revolutionary America, a libel trial that pitted medicine against the press, republicanism against federalism, and privacy against the public welfare.
