NEW! The first complete revision of John Bouvier's great law dictionary in more than a century - made relevant and authoritative for modern students of the law Derived from the famous 1853 law dictionary used by John Marshall, Daniel Webster, and Abraham Lincoln, The Wolters Kluwer Bouvier Law Dictionary Desk Edition has been brought completely up-to-date by a distinguished and widely-published legal scholar and teacher. Steve Sheppard, with law degrees from Oxford and Columbia Universities, brings his scholarship, international practice, and litigation experience to bear in making the famous text as relevant today as it was when it first broke ground in American law. Definitions derived from contemporary as well as classic sources give the reference book its depth and authority. Building on Bouvier's structure and entries, Professor Sheppard has added thousands of new terms and rewritten many original definitions. 8,500 robust, paragraph-length entries explain more than 11,200 words and phrases, far more than the original two-volume set of 6,600. Every entry comes with the complete derivation of the term and quotations - numbering in the tens of thousands - illustrating its use, making The Wolters Kluwer Bouvier Law Dictionary Desk Edition as comprehensive and thought-provoking as the great Abridgments of the Common Law. Each entry is written to be understood by the modern student, argued by the modern lawyer, and cited by the modern judge. An intuitive structure and thorough cross-referencing makes the first complete revision of this essential dictionary in more than a hundred years accessible and easy to use.
