Duquesne Law Review


R. W. M. Dias


"Source" and "source material" of law is the subject-matter of this collection of some of Professor Helen Silving's papers.' It should be remarked at the outset that these papers should have been revised so as to take account of recent writings, without which the book wears a dated air. For instance, no mention is made of Karl N. Llewellyn's The Common Law Tradition, which ought to find a place in any discussion of statute and precedent; instead there are references to his Bramble Bush, published in 1930, which he himself regarded as a tour de force of youth. Nor, more seriously, is there any allusion to Lon L. Fuller's The Morality of Law without which any discussion of natural law is incomplete.
