Review

." . . a paean to human liberty. . . . This book [owes] much of its value to the details of the particular case studies, and to Scott's enthusiasm and ingenuity in seeing links among apparently different human projects. . . . [A] remarkably interesting book . . ." -Cass R. Sunstein, New Republic -- Cass R. Sunstein "New Republic"
