Abstract

This is a review essay discussing Neil Duxbury's book PATTERNS OF AMERICAN JURISPRUDENCE (Oxford University Press, 1995), taking issue, in particular, with Professor Duxbury's misunderstandings of (1) American Legal Realism, (2) Critical Legal Studies, and (3) the relationship between economic analysis of law and Legal Realism. The essay also addresses the question whether it is fruitful to think of jurisprudential movements in terms of their geographic boundaries.
