Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Introduces CASE (computer-aided software engineering) by exploring what it is, how it is being used to improve software productivity, and how it relates to other software technologies. Software, hardware, methodology, and management are discussed. Case studies from users in industry are included, as well as numerous illustrations on specification, design, documentation information, and reports and code generated by CASE tools. Prose is notably vigorous for a book. Page layout and use of color is also pleasing. Alkaline paper. This is the first English translation of a book originally published in German about American case law. It's based on a series of lectures delivered at Leipzig in 1928 by Karl Llewellyn, one of the foremost figures in the American legal realist movement. The subject matter is almost exclusively American: how our legal system is organized, how cases are decided, how precedents are used, how the case law system evolves. With an important introduction by Paul Gewirtz. For law students, lawyers and legal scholars. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
