Writing in 1968 on research in the then infant discipline of law and social science, Harry Kalven noted with some pride the growing body of book-length work in the area. While the "relevant" bookshelf in Kalven's office was "still well under five feet," there had for Kalven "been nothing like [these books] previously, and their existence mark[ed] a major change in the relationship of law and science." Today, when I look around my office, I see 11 relevant bookshelves, which is only a small fraction of what has been produced.
