Presentation copy, inscribed: 'For Ben [Kaplan]-/this effort to bring the true art of/reading a case down from the icing/into the middle layer of the cake-/with affection and admiration/Karl'. Presentation copies of this uncommon book stand to be especially uncommon, as Llewellyn died only two years after its publication. Karl N. Llewellyn's classic [is] The Common Law Tradition: Deciding Appeals. Llewellyn was, of course, the premier commercial law scholar of the modern era as shown by his selection by the American Law Institute and the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws as the chief reporter for the momentous Uniform Commercial Code project. He has also been regarded as the leader of the American Legal Realist Movement. The Common Law Tradition was written in 1960, less than two years before his death, and was his last major work, representing his final thinking on the judicial process. There is a certain irony in the reasons Llewellyn gave for writing The Common Law Tradition, and in some of his conclusions. More contemporary legal scholars would consider Legal Realism's primary teaching to be that our appellate decision process is nothing more than subjective indeterminancy. 'Legal Realism produced the insight that case analysis cannot generate objective answers to legal problems.' Llewellyn, however, stated that his purpose in writing The Common Law Tradition was to dispel a 'crisis in confidence' of the Bar in our appellate courts and the cynical view that appellate judges' decisions represent little more than naked will, later merely rationalized in the writing of the opinion. The Common Law Tradition was based upon Llewellyn's study of literally hundreds upon hundreds of high state court decisions handed down over some three decades' (Howard Levine, 'Deciding Cases in 'The Common Law Tradition': A Productive And Innovative Year For The Court Of Appeals In Business And Commercial Litigation'; SYRACUSE L. REV. 355, 362 (1998)). Buchnummer des Verkäufers 21112
