Editorial Reviews

Review

A new edition of Kutler's classic work, in which he analyzes the origins, context, and impact of the Charles River Bridge case, in which the Supreme Court ruled that the state of Massachusetts had the right to erect a free bridge over the Charles River even though it had previously chartered a privately owned toll bridge at the same location. Kutler argues that the... case is a landmark instance of 'creative destruction' by the judiciary, whereby the Court permitted new community needs to supersede previously held property rights.

(Law and Social Inquiry)

Richly detailed and methodically reasoned... Highly recommended for all students of legal history.

(Bimonthly Review of Law Books)

Format: Paperback
Kutler's book provides a very interesting look at the Charles River Bridge case, a monumental period in American Law that at once signaled the development of modern corporate law and showed the beginnings of modernity in American jurisprudence. Kutler takes a thorough look at not only the legal but also the social aspects of the case, without being overly dry or scholarly.
