Here is a companion volume for the two preceding books written by Judge Cardozo within the past half-dozen years, The Growth of the Law and the Nature of the Judicial Process. It is in much the same tone and, like the others, consists of a series of lectures, this time on the Carpentier foundation, Columbia University. The book develops further the point of view which this eminent jurist has emphasized before. Like its predecessors, it is in some respects a penetrating intellectual autobiography, describing, in places approaching the tragic, the mental and spiritual travail of an extremely sensitive intellect. Many will regard this as the best of the series.
