Abstract:     
New lawyers and attorneys transplanted to Kentucky are often unprepared for the way that the commonwealth's political history has shaped, framed and explained the law. This short piece attempts to guide the perplexed with a highly selective annotated bibliography. The article lists books in three areas. First, books that illustrate the history and politics that lies just under the surface of Kentucky jurisprudence are discussed. Then, works on Kentucky's legal culture are surveyed. Finally, the short list of commentaries on the state's constitution are described.
