This twelve volume set is unmatched for many different types of libraries. It is a little too basic for a law firm library, but for academic or public libraries it cannot be beat. It is simply organized, has very thorough explanations of over 4,000 legal terms and important legal events, and devotes a whole volume to a very useful dictionary.

There are several websites which directly reference this material in giving legal definitions ([...] for instance). I can tell you that every article on "proximate cause" is completely wrong. It conflates the definition with "actual cause" and then says a "but for" test is used to determine proximate cause. I realize that some judges even get this wrong, but I would be afraid to use an encyclopedia that does.

I will go check out an actual copy and then modify this review.
