Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have not had time to read it all; bought b/c I was interested in Bagenstos on judiciary and sped. as I am doing dissertation in that area.

That article and another I read were interesting, and the choices the editors made seem to make for a good overview and reference.

I didn't give it 5 stars only b/c i have not read the whole thing.
