I see in the actual faculty lounge here in Chapel Hill that the new Michigan Law Review book review issue is out. This one runs to 312 pages and it looks like there are nineteen books reviewed there (one essay reviews two books). Looks like three legal history books are reviewed there, though none by people whose primary area of research is legal history. Ed Rubin reviews Brian Tamanaha's Beyond the Formalist-Realist Divide: The Role of Politics in Judging; Tom Goldstein and Amy Howe review Barry Friedman's The Will of the People: How Public Opinion Has Influenced the Supreme Court and Shaped the Meaning of the Constitution; and Tracey Maclin and Julia Mirabella review William J. Cuddihy's The Fourth Amendment: Origins and Original Meaning, 602–1791.
I wrote a couple of years back about the changes in the size and number of books reviewed by Michigan.
