The Essential Holmes Zusammenfassung

The Essential Holmes: Selections from the Letters, Speeches, Judicial Opinions and Other Writings of Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. Oliver Wendell Holmes

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., has been called the greatest jurist and legal scholar in the history of the English-speaking world. In this collection of his speeches, opinions, and letters, Richard Posner reveals the fullness of Holmes' achievements as judge, historian, philosopher, and master of English style. Thematically arranged, the volume covers a rich variety of subjects from aging and death to themes in politics, personalities, and law. Posner's substantial introduction firmly places this wealth of material in its proper biographical and historical context. A first-rate prose stylist, [Holmes] was perhaps the most quotable of all judges, as this ably edited volume shows.--Washington Post Book World Brilliantly edited, lucidly organized, and equipped with a compelling introduction by Judge Posner, [this book] is one of the finest single-volume samplers of any author's work I have seen...Posner has fully captured the acrid tang of him in this masterly anthology.--Terry Teachout, National Review Excellent...A worthwhile contribution to current American political/legal discussions. --Library Journal The best source for the reader who wants a first serious acquaintance with Holmes.--Thomas C. Grey, New York Review of Books
