This volume, which brings together, with one exception, all of Stocking's papers relating to workable competition, is more than a random collection of essays. As he indicates in the preface, the papers had been conceived from the beginning as segments of a book, and they proceed to cover systematically the relation of the concept of workable competition to the major areas of antitrust policy.


Sir Frederick Pollock was born in 1845 and died in 1937. Throughout this long life, his industry was apparently unflagging. His mark is clearly discernible in wide areas of English law. Every student of the common law knows what 'Tollock and Maitland" is, without, possibly, knowing who they were. Pollock's Torts has been through fifteen editions, and his Contracts was edited for the eleventh time in 1942. He was the editor of the Law Quarterly Review for 35 years (1885-1920).


Based only upon the evidence contained between the covers of "My Life in Court," the casual reader can only assume that its author, Mr. Louis Nizer of the New York City Bar, even as Perry Mason, of television fame,has never lost a case. Nonetheless, the fact that this account of courtroom experiences has maintained its position as a best-seller at or near the top of the popularity listings for many months should serve as sufficient recommendation to any lawyer that the book should be read.
