Fred Schauer’s and Richard McAdams’s books impressively enrich the legal literature. Their analyses are clear-headed and largely persuasive. Particular strengths are Schauer’s skeptical outlook and lively prose, and McAdams’s command of game theory and inventive turn of mind. A committed researcher will value the footnotes in both works, which brim with citations to sources in a wide variety of disciplines.
