As a legal pragmatist who thinks that law is predominantly best thought of as being based in the specific context at hand, without secure foundations, instrumental, and always attached to a perspective, I am sometimes nervous
about picking up a casebook. It reminds me of the heavy bags of similar tomes once toted nervously around the law school. These tomes were the lifeline of law students but were also curiously circumscribed and limited because they never seemed to have quite ‘enough’ in them to explain everything we needed.
