Review


Acclaim for previous editions
"[A]n outstanding book.[A] keenly intelligent and insightful explanation of how American appellate judges have justified the special power they have in this nation."--Journal of American History


Acclaim for previous editions
"White has written a thoughtful and often provocative work. The portraits are lucid, salient and well focused, and they readily suggest the variety of ways in which judges have exercised the personal discretion permitted by institutions of law."--The American Historical Review


Acclaim for previous editions
"...stimulating and highly readable.... The American Judicial Tradition...provides an excellent introduction to some of the most influential American judges and cases [and] like all good books, provokes as many questions as it resolves."--Administrative Law Review


Acclaim for previous editions
"[P]rovide[s] a trenchant insight into the professional background, commitments, and jurisprudence of those jurists as well as a genuine understanding of the historical periods in which they functioned. We are all in Professor White's debt for a major achievement."--Virginia Law Review

By Paul H. Blackman on June 20, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Edward White's first edition or two of "The American Judicial Tradition" may have been "profiles of leading American judges," but the third edition has removed too much from the 19th century in order to become mostly a commentary on Supreme Court trends from the New Deal onward -- a topic that now covers about two-thirds of the book. For a student of history, interested in history, commentary on the Court as a whole, without much concern as to which judges are "leading" and which are merely in power, was a big disappointment.

This book should be one of the most classical about American legal history.
