"Larry Solan’s The Language of Statutes is a worthy successor to his The Language of Judges, which remains the best introduction to the value of linguistic analysis to statutory interpretation. The new book explores the jurisprudential as well as practical payoffs of language scholarship for statutory interpretation. The Language of Statutes is a must-read for any serious student of the debates about the rule of lenity, legislative intent, and the new textualism. It is a triumph of reason and learning—plus, the book is an enjoyable read. The linguistic adventures of the Rossi family alone is worth the price of this informative tome."—William N. Eskridge Jr.
