Overview
The law has traditionally been regarded as a set of rules and institutions. In this series of thoughtful essays, James Boyd White urges a fresh view of the law as an essentially literary, rhetorical, and ethical activity. Defining and elaborating his conception, he artfully bridges the fields of jurisprudence, literature, philosophy, history, and political science. The result--a new approach that may change the way we perceive the legal process--will engage not only lawyers and law students but anyone interested in the relationships among ethics, persuasion, and community.
