Bill Moore is a giant in the field of procedure. His treatise on federal practice is one of the classics of our time. It has a wealth of background material from history, ancient and modern, including the many reports of the advisory committee and the steps taken in the formulation and changes of the Rules themselves. Beyond that it rates penetrating analysis and broad vision, all expressed in lucid style. Others will treat more fully Bill's impressive contributions to his chosen fields of scholarship. I shall not try to do that here but want there to be no doubt about my hearty amen to praise on this score.
