In recent decades, Oliver Wendell Holmes has been praised as the only great American legal thinker and the most illustrious figure in the history of American law. But in Albert Alschuler's critique of both Justice Holmes and contemporary legal scholarship, a darker portrait is painted--that of a man who, among other things, espoused Social Darwinism, favored eugenics, and, as he himself acknowledged, came devilish near to believing that might makes right.
