In many respects this volume is one of the most important publications of recent years. No man in public life commanded the universal respect accorded by men of all shades of opinion to Mr. Justice Holmes. In him were blended in nice proportions a sturdy Americanism, a devotion to the spirit of the law, a forward-looking social attitude and a prescience of the morrow. Perhaps in no other American was so well exemplified the Greek attitude expressed in this sentence: 'Let us go where the argument leads us.' The dissenting opinions of Mr. Justice Holmes, as they were delivered one by one from the bench, were hailed by the press as masterpieces of liberal thought and of literary style. The present volume is a result of the wide-spread demand that these opinions be made available for the public in compact, permanent form.
