Review:


"[A] highly useful collection....The selections chosen for inclusion, the introductory discussion of each section, and the extensive citations all make this an essential volume for the study of law in American society."--American Studies International


"A very thoughtful selection of pre-Realist and Realist essays with marvelous introductory notes. Not just a useful teaching tool, but a valuable addition to understanding Realism."--Gregory Mark, Chicago-Kent College of Law


"This carefully selected and expertly edited collection of Realist texts should serve both students and their professors very well. It may well become a standard book for legal history courses."--Norman Rosenberg, Macalester College


"Very useful in teaching American legal history."--Louise Halper, Washington and Lee Law School


"Wonderful and very well edited. Every law student should read it."--Eric Lane, Hofstra Law School


"A very helpful collection of well chosen materials."--Ray Forrester, University of California, Hastings


"An excellent collection of materials which will be an invaluable resource in my teaching."--Jeff Powell, Duke University


"High powered stuff!...Well done!"--David Robinson, University of Houston-Downtown


"Comprehensive and rounded."--Thomas G. Barnes, University of California, Berkeley


"Realism remade the landscape of our law; in today's new world of transcendental nonsense, we ignore the Realists at our peril. Too many do, and this book is therefore essential. No one should leave law school without it."--Eben Moglen, Columbia Law School


"Good collection of writings and thoughts on the subject."--Sally Jo Vasicko, Ball State University
