The Fourth Amendment

William J. Cuddihy

Oxford University Press

This chapter shows that between 1761 and 1776, the specific warrant moved to the center stage of events respecting search and seizure. Britons now realized not only that general warrants had to go, but that specific warrants should take their place. Politics underpinned this evolution of arrest and search warrants in Britain after 1763.
