About This Item

Oxford University Press, UK/ NY, 1993. 1st edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. "White not only provides a vivid portrait of Holmes's life, but examines in depth the inner life and thought of this preeminent legal figure. There is a full chapter devoted to The Common Law, for instance, and throughout the book, there is astute commentary on Holmes's legal writings. Indeed, White reveals that some of the themes that have dominated 20th-century American jurisprudence--including protection for free speech and the belief that 'judges make the law' - originated in Holmes's work." [Pub. Info] There is a protective mylar cover. 1ST EDITION.
