Despite the fact that Peter Daniel is little remembered today, his career has been the subject of two scholarly works. Lawrence Burnette, Jr., contributed an interpretive essay, "Peter V. Daniel: Agrarian Justice," 62 Virginia Magazine of History and Biography 289 ( 1954). The other is a full-scale biography: John P. Frank, Justice Daniel Dissenting: A Biography of Peter V. Daniel, 1784-1860 ( Cambridge, Mass., 1964). Both pieces capably develop the central theme of agrarianism, and in tandem they have seemingly "fixed" Daniel's position and relative importance as politician and jurist. Other works on Daniel are H. B. Brown's article, "The Dissenting Opinions of Mr. Justice Daniel," 21 American Law Review ( 1887) (reprinted in 46 American Law Review [ 1912]), and B. M. Hendrick's full-length work, Bulwark of the Republic: A Biography of the Constitution ( Boston, 1957).
