This enigmatic jurist still compells attention from lawyers and judges and is currently enjoying a revival of interest.

Oliver Wendell Jones Jr (1841-1935) is remembered not only for his quotable aphorisms - "every idea is an incitement" - but also for his ability to combine intellectual theory with the tedious practical details of legal doctrine.

This book analyzes his work and helps explain the influence Holmes has had on the modern legal profession.
