“Glendon’s analysis has historical depth and ideological subtlety: she recognizes both the strengths and the weaknesses of the past and states that the number of lawyers matters less than what those lawyers do.”—Publishers Weekly
“Poor old civilization finally has an eloquent lawyer to defend it.”—Judith Martin, "Miss Manners"
“One of the most accessible and best-written books about the legal profession in the last few years.”—David Luban, New York Times Book Review
“Glendon argues powerfully...[A Nation Under Lawyers is] a witty and concise book...about the profession’s "crisis"; possibly the best of the many such books; certainly the easiest to read...This fine book will make us think.”—Richard A. Posner, New Republic
