What I've Been Reading
I'm in the midst of reading William Twining's Karl Llewellyn and the Realist Movement (Cambridge 2012), an excellent survey of the legal-realist literature and defense of Llewellyn's interdisciplinary approach to legal studies as found in his major works, including The Bramble Bush (Oceana 1930), The Cheyenne Way (Oklahoma 1983), and The Common Law Tradition (Little, Brown 1960). As a sympathizer with legal realism and an interdisciplinary scholar myself, I view Llewellyn as a groundbreaking forerunner. Twining's book about him is very insightful.
