18 In 1997, Professor Albert W. Alschuler of the University of Chicago Law
School wrote his disapproving and highly readable book about Holmes's life and
legacy, with the title Law without Values, echoing attacks from patriotic and
natural law theorists during the Second World War.The idea thatHolmes's

value-transparent) betrays a misunderstanding of his overall career and a
marked tendency to miss the ...

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Junior, "Books" Perhaps we have lost an important sense
of how difficult it must have been for an extraordinarily ambitious young man to
grow up in mid-nineteenth-century Boston — or anywhere in mid-nineteenth-

odds, ...

Novick also wrote his own biography of Holmes, Honorable Justice: The Life of
Oliver Wendell Holmes (1989), which presents the most vivid portrayal of
Holmes's extraordinarily significant experiences during the Civil War, when he
was thrice wounded, though it is surprisingly weak in analyzing Holmes's thought
(on which White is definitely the best work to read). Excellent essays on Holmes's
thought can be found in Robert W. Gordon, ed., The Legacy of Oliver Wendell
Holmes, Jr.
