Editorial Reviews


Tiersma’s historical perspective is invaluable, his analysis of the present eye-opening, and his recommendations for the future provocative. No one I know of is in a better position than he to analyze the topics treated in this volume and to explore their implications for the practice of law.”

(Edward Finegan, University of Southern California)

I recommend this book for every lawyer - very interesting discussion of how the law developed and how the mode of transmission affects the content.
