In a revised and substantially improved edition of his classic 1985 book, The Federal Courts: Crisis and Reform, Posner, chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, provides an insightful and distinctive examination of the problems and challenges that have arisen from the unprecedented growth in caseload in federal courts… [His] thoughtful analysis is highly recommended.Library Journal

Anyone concerned with the judicial administration of appellate courts should read this book.—Mary Massaron Ross, State Bar of Michigan Appellate Practice Section Newsletter
