Reviews

"[A] marvelous, multifaceted pointilliste portrait of the good, the bad and the ugly faces of American jurisprudence through the centuries. . . . The Yale Biographical Dictionary of American Law is a delightfully engaging read. At times entertaining, at others chilling, it is consistently informative and instructive. Once you dip into it, you will find it hard to stop."--Martin Rubin, The Washington Times--Martin Rubin "The Washington Times "
Chosen as an Outstanding Academic Title for 2009 by Choice Magazine--Choice (01/01/2010)

". . . this little gem manages to be scholarly yet surprisingly entertaining at the same

time."
