Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
[Yale Law School and the Sixties] stands as a fine study of campus politics in the sixties.--Law and Politics Book Review

[A] remarkable study about legal education, about how 1960s issues permeated campus life, and about individuals caught up in the archetypical generational struggle between liberals and radicals.--American Historical Review

By being the first person ever to try to understand and so seriously to portray any group of law students at a time and place, Laura [Kalman] has provided a baseline from which to attempt to consider what separates those students from law students today.--Law and Social Inquiry

An outstanding read for anyone interested in American institutions during the late 1960s and early 1970s.--Law and History Review

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
Laura Kalman's new book on the Yale Law School is a stunning work of microhistory--no academic institution has ever been studied in greater depth. At the same time, the book also illuminates general developments in American culture during an especially important period in our history.--Sanford Levinson, University of Texas Law School
