It’s Not a Good Source When . . .

I decided to get the only biography on Justice McReynolds.  It was written in 1992 by a guy named James Bond, and the title is I Dissent:  The Legacy of Chief Justice James Clark McReynolds.  You get ten points if you can spot the problem.

    I tried to find it on Amazon and was directed to “Liberty, Property, and Privacy: Toward a Jurisprudence of Substantive Due Process” which cites it … the author of that book notes the error in the title but found the work as a whole “insightful.” Going further, the reviews was mixed. One noted that “the press” (publisher) admitted error as to the title. So, it might not be proper to blame the author on that front.

    I have a copy of a book on the Bloomsbury Group whose front cover tells me it’s about (among other) Virginia “Wolff.” It’s a keeper.

    There’s a reason why George Mason University Press is now defunct. As for the book, it’s okay.
