With the holidays approaching, I thought I’d provide a friendly reminder that books by Volokh Conspiracy bloggers make great presents for that special legal theory nerd/historian/law student/libertarian/law geek/Second Amendment enthusiast/educated lay reader/etc. on your list. It’s also a nice way of showing appreciation for our bloggers.
And some links for your convenience:
Bernstein, Rehabilitating Lochner: Defending Individual Rights Against Progressive Reform [In preparing this post I noticed that for no apparent reason Amazon has suddenly and drastically reduced the price of Rehabilitating Lochner from $35+ to $23, by far the lowest price I’ve seen for it. I don’t know how long this will last, but if you’ve been thinking of buying the book, now is a good time!]
Carpenter, Flagrant Conduct: The Story of Lawrence v. Texas (pre-order)
UPDATE: Note that I didn’t include casebooks, treatises, and hornbooks in this list, because, e.g., who really wants to get Bernstein et al., The New Wigmore: Expert and Scientific Evidence for Christmas?
