Interesting/Quirky books about the law?

Postby HarveyBirdman » Wed Aug 03, 2011 12:09 pm

I'm not looking for books to read before law school kind of books. I'm talking more about books that just provide an interesting perspective on the history or workings of law. For personal interest only.

Recently I bought "the criminal prosecution and capital punishment of animals" after stumbling across the title in some weird history fact book. I guess I'm looking for more along those lines. Though to a lesser extent, that book "how judges think" also interests me. Again, just to read, not to omg prepare for 1L!!11

If you like Supreme Court stuff I'd recommend The Brethren and People's History of the Supreme Court. Both pretty good reads.
