Although not so described on its title page, this is essentially a casebook and is an amplification of materials prepared by the editors for a course offered by them at Yale Law School. In addition to cases, the great majority of which are decisions of the United States Supreme Court, there are numerous excerpts from legal and non-legal literature designed to provide a factual background for the problems considered in the cases, and to supplement the doctrinal analyses and arguments of the opinions. Then there are digests of a host of recent cases, and finally, extensive bibliographies of the literature, legal and nonlegal, on each of the areas covered in the book. These last two features are designed, most successfully, to meet the needs of the practicing lawyer, or any other person who wishes to pursue a particular subject further.
