From the Inside Flap:

"A book which laymen should read for insight into the operations of the courts of this country. . . . Judge Frank does away with the mystery and the magic. A brilliant demonstration of the use of all the 'social sciences' in analyzing a legal problem. These criticisms . . . Will stimulate the modem lawyer, anthropologist, psychiatrist, and philosopher."--Justice William O. Douglas
