For more than one hundred years, Harvard's use of the case method of appellate opinions dominated legal education. Deploring the attempt to reduce law to an autonomous system of rules and principles, the realists at Yale developed a functional approach to the discipline--one that stressed the factual context of the case rather than the legal principles it raised, one that attempted to address issues of social policy by integrating law with the social sciences.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An interesting and effective contribution to the poetics of dissent. . . . This book shows the centrality of theatrical ideas and metaphors to extremist religious writers of the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance."--David Bevington
"Kendall rightly argues for the continuity of a native literary tradition . . . into the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, notably in the plain-style writings of early Protestants and later Puritans."--John N. King, Bates College
