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
