Reviews

"The mark of good literature is that it serves to teach and to delight. The Devil's Advocates does both, and it also inspires." - The Federal Lawyer
"Some of the cases are famous, some are infamous, and some are obscure, but all are revealing page-turners...A readable and fascinating book. - Library Journal
"An unexpectedly gripping read. Lief and Caldwell have a gift for cracking a case open and making potentially dry details vivid...[The book] emerges as an unusual and informative legal history, offering clear views into earlier eras of legal thought and practice." - The American Lawyer
