(p.265) Chapter 12 English and British Advocacy of the Specific Warrant, to 17601
The Fourth Amendment

William J. Cuddihy

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the origins of the specific warrant. By 1760, Britons had emplaced much of the intellectual foundation for what became the specific warrant clause of the Fourth Amendment. Specific warrants had progressed steadily in British law, and British politicians, lawyers, and assorted intellectuals had deposited a body of coherent thought, an ideology, in defense of those warrants. Specific warrants offered a viable substitute for the general warrant as the conventional method of search and seizure.
