“In scope and treatment this volume (as is fitting) is quite unlike any other in the series. It is not a treatise on analytical jurisprudence, … It is, rather, an attempt to deal historically with certain of the philosophical, and, particularly, the psychological forces which have operated in the development of law. Not the law of any particular country or time, but law generally.
Professor Tourtoulon is here neither an advocate, a reformer, a prophet, nor a propagandist. He is, rather, an acute, a wise, and courageous analyst and critic. He takes up one idea or conception after another, subjects it to a close and searching examination, points out its truth or fallacy, makes almost always a wise and frequently a witty comment, and passes on.
His exposure of shams, fallacies, and loose- ness of thought, is very keen. His chapter on the ‘Diseases of Legal Thinking’ would alone justify the writing and the reading of the book.”
Excerpts from Book Review by Floyd R. Mechem, for The American Political Science Review, Vol. 17, No. 1, pp. 114-117, Published by American Political Science Association
