About This Item

2015. ISBN-13: 9781584770404; ISBN-10: 1584770406. Calabresi, Guido. A Common Law for the Age of Statutes. Originally published: Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1982. [x], 319 pp. Reprinted 2000, 2015 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 9781584770404; ISBN-10: 1584770406. Hardcover. New. $35. * Calabresi complains that we are "choking on statutes" and proposes a restoration of the courts to their common law function. From a series of lectures given by Calabresi as part of The Oliver Wendell Holmes Lectures delivered at Harvard Law School in March 1977. "In his most recent publication, A Common Law for the Age of Statutes, based on the Oliver Wendell Holmes lectures he delivered at Harvard in March of 1977, Professor Calabresi has brought his ample juristic talents to bear on a foundational problem of the legal and democratic process. He has produced a monograph that in its quality, timeliness and provocativeness is likely to stand alongside the seminal works of Ronald Dworkin and Grant Gilmore." -- Allan C. Hutchinson and Derek Morgan, 82 Columbia Law Review 1752 1982 GUIDO CALABRESI [1932-] is Sterling Emeritus Professor of Law and Professorial Lecturer in Law at Yale Law School. He was Dean of Yale Law School from 1985-1994, and was appointed United States Circuit Judge in 1994. He is also the author of The Costs of Accidents (1970), Tragic Choices (1978) and Ideals, Beliefs, Attitudes, and the Law (1985).
