Overview

A renowned legal historian's collection of astute and timeless essays on such subjects as the process, method and debates of legal history; the unvarnished truth about Holmes and Brandeis; legal realism and its critics; the origins of American tort law and theory; appellate opinions as research sources; Brown v. Board of Education and the roles of Earl Warren and of public opinion; and the development of gay rights and relationship privacy in U.S. constitutional law.

In many ways, this book is actually a history of "legal history" itself, as it critically examines not only important changes in law and legal thought in the U.S. but also the discipline of historicizing law over the years.

This book is available in a quality digital format, as part of the Legal History & Biography Series from Quid Pro Books. Includes active Contents, linked footnotes, and even a complete Index fully linked to proper locations in the book. Also available in a new 2010 print edition with the same cover (please look for it).
