Holdsworth, William S. Charles Dickens as a Legal Historian. New Haven: Yale University Press, 1929. 157 pp. Reprinted 1995 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. LCCN 96-46579. ISBN 1-886363-06-4. Cloth. $40. * "The distinguished English historian, Professor Holdsworth, has contrived even during his moments of recreation to render us his debtors. No two books outside the bounds of technical law are more worth reading for law students than Pickwick Papers and Bleak House. Even a trained trial lawyer however, is puzzled by some of the legal points brought up by Dickens, because they have fortunately passed forever out of the realm of living law. Professor Holdsworth has performed a valuable service to lawyers and laymen alike in explaining these obscurities. And he has done much more than this. He has increased our admiration for the genius of Dickens by proving his great merit as a legal historian.": Zechariah Chafee, Jr. Harvard Law Review 42:286-8.

Law and literature have been two of the most powerful discourses in the construction of social reality. The relationship between the two has emerged as a vital new area of study, as literature has influenced popular understanding of law. Utilising legal and literary theory, Kieran Dolin examines the interplay between legal discourse and the novel in the century between Walter Scott and E. M. Forster. This comprehensive study draws on legal and literary theory to trace this important convergence of disciplines in a series of canonical Victorian and Modernist texts.

As the radical reforms contained in the Enterprise Act 2002 have come fully on-stream, Personal Insolvency Law has become a major focus of attention. At the same time, all evidence points to increasing levels of personal debt with the consequential rise in bankruptcies. Personal Insolvency Law, Regulation and Policy therefore provides a timely evaluation of the current state of English law in this important area. The volume presents a critical analysis of the regimes of bankruptcy and individual voluntary arrangement in the context of current policy goals. It examines the impact of the Insolvency Act 2000 and the Enterprise Act 2002, and discusses the treatment of bankruptcy within the global economy. The book will be a valuable guide for students and academics engaged in the study of this increasingly important branch of private law. The study will also be of value to practitioners and policy makers.

Holdsworth, Sir William. An Historical Introduction to the Land Law. London: Oxford University Press, 1927. xxiv, 339 pp. Reprinted 2004 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. LCCN 2002025949. ISBN 1-58477-262-X. Cloth. $95. * Sir William Holdsworth [1871-1944] was one of the most distinguished historians of English common law. Written to provide students of Real Property with a concise history of the field, Holdsworth believed this knowledge necessary as contemporary land law was difficult to understand without an understanding of its roots. Fifoot commends this book in his English Law and its Background for its history of the rules against perpetuities (121). The Law Quarterly Review noted that "every beginner will certainly have to read [this] book before he reads anything else" (44:105). Both sources cited in Marke, A Catalogue of the Law Collection at New York University (1953) 773.
