Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

"The high-technology invasion of the legal process is in full swing," observes Katsh, a law professor at the University of Massachusetts. In this lucid, well-documented commentary, he persuasively argues that the telecommunications media are effecting fundamental changes in legal doctrine concerning individual expression and, more specifically, the creation, storage, processing, and dissemination of information. Just as the advent of printing, for instance, rendered state control over printed matter much less effective than in pre-Gutenberg times, so the electronic revolution is prompting challenges to the law in such areas as privacy, copyright, and obscenity. A first-class book, essential for law and journalism collections.
- Kenneth F. Kister, Poynter Inst. for Media Studies, St. Petersburg, Fla.
Copyright 1989 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Review


"A seminal book."--ABA Journal


"Katsh maintains that new forms of electronic communication, in their ability to foster more and faster links among people, will be supportive both of less abstraction in legal relations and of greater group consciousness in the formulation of our legal ideals....Mr. Katsh suggests that as our legal categories and traditions become archaic, law will change into an enterprise more responsive to real needs, in which communication is inevitably more nuanced, more frequent, less literal (even less literate) and more like a conversation....This is an absorbing book, evocative and optimistic."--The New York Times Book Review


"A coherently argued, thoroughly researched, and brightly written book."--Judicature


"Brilliant jurisprudential speculation in virgin philosophical territory."--Philadelphia Inquirer


"A compelling and truly groundbreaking work....Everyone with an interest in how the law functions should read this important book."--International Journal of Legal Information
