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
the dictionary used by Daniel Webster, Abraham Lincoln, and Justice
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. 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.
