Descripción

First Edition. xxxix, 318 pp. Original cloth. Near Fine, in near fine dust jacket (unclipped). 'Professor Rostow's book is a magnificent example of de Tocqueville's observation that in the United States the 'aristocracy' is to be found in the legal profession. The intellectual vigour, courage and integrity of eminent lawyers, judges and teachers in the law schools have more than once saved the American soul from humiliations it might have suffered had politicians and publicists been allowed their way. Nowadays we would not use de Tocqueville's word, but his meaning is clear. In the world of the law are to be found men who will not be swayed by political pressure, social ostracism and public passion. If these be 'aristocratic' virtues they are needed in a democracy, and the legal profession produces such men of wide learning, and respect for fact and logic and tradition' (R. H. Pear, review for International Affairs, Royal Institute of International Affairs 1944-, Vol. 40, No. 1, Jan., 1964, pp. 91-3). N° de ref. de la librería 16799
