KIRKUS REVIEW

This history of American Law, legislation, legal institutions is an excellent assembling of material for the serious student of law, research libraries, college law courses, and any and all those interested in legal history and problems. Its merit lies in that fact that it brings together information on all types of courts, constitutional conventions, law making bodies of all sorts; that it offers examples of well-argued cases; that it follows the progress of the law and its offices as they are effected through necessity and discorded through failure and as they have changed during the years; that it offers theories and criticism in all fairness. The notes, bibliography and index add to its value as a professional aid.
