Buy This Gem

Be sure to place an advance order for your copy of the following sparkler: the second edition of The Structure of Legal Argument and Proof: Cases, Materials, and Analyses by J.S. Covington, Jr. You will find no better introduction to legal reasoning and other kinds of uncertain reasoning in law. This little book has much to offer old war horses as well as young stallions and fillies.

The book will be available in August from William S. Hein & Co., Inc., Buffalo, New York.

Poor or non-existent marketing by the publisher of the first edition doomed the author's first effort to obscurity. You should help see to it that such an injustice does not happen again. If it does, you will be the poorer for it.

Covington is Professor of Law Emeritus at the University of Houston.
