Format: Paperback
It feels strange and a little risky to give a book that shows so many professional insights and whose authors seem to have genuine devotion to their subject the equivalent of a C+. But the U.S. is suffering too many unnecessary problems to continue to give reality a pass out of fear of frowns by the establishment.

According to an online biography Carter got his law degree from Harvard (and PhD at University of California Berkeley), taught at the University of Georgia from 1973 to 1995, and published major texts in constitutional law, and legal reasoning. "Reason in Law" by Carter was in the 7th edition in 2005. From 1995 to 2004 Carter served as a Distinguished Professor of American Institutions at Colorado College. This background explains the book's special emphasis on legal reasoning in a framework of American history.

The organization of the book begins with basic philosophy of why regulations are needed to make capitalism/market systems work fairly, continues to history, and then to the how's - the implementation, rationales, and conflicts over administrative and regulatory law in the last century up to recent time.

The writing is clear, although the authors are tempted to dwell at length on the fine points of arcane legal reasoning. The text is interspersed with numerous mini case descriptions that illuminate topics and concepts.

The problem for me is that the authors know and love American law not wisely but too well. They seem to feel a special awe for the American system, treating bizarre recent developments that are unique among advanced nations as though everything is going the way it is supposed to.

The book was good for the class I was taking, but it was a very difficult read if you are not pursuing law.

I was very excited to receive what appears to be a brand new book for the price of a used one. In addition, the product arrived two days after it shipped. Wish I could say that for some of the other book companies. I would reccomend to everyone!
