Fine in Very Good jacket. Octavo, hardcover, fine in near fine black dj with white lettering. 83pp. Oliver Wendell Holmes Lectures delivered by Professor Black at the Harvard Law School. The power of the courts, and especially of the Supreme Court, is very great in our political system. This power is justified by the public on the ground that the courts decide cases 'according to the law' On the other hand, much modern thought about law tends to suggest that the concept of 'decision according to law' is elusive. Black concludes that, while 'decision according to law' cannot, in any simple sense, now be wholly undrstood or attained, it is too important a concept to be given up.
