Slippery Slopes in 10 Pages:

Ward Farnsworth's The Legal Analyst includes a chapter on slippery slopes that's generally based on my Mechanisms of the Slippery Slope article.

As is usually the case with Ward's work, it's extremely well written, and I can't imagine a better 10 pages on the subject. If you don't want to read my whole law review article (and who really wants to read whole law review articles?), read Ward's 10 pages instead -- many thanks to Ward and his publisher for letting me put the chapter on my site -- or, better yet, read his whole book.

that's the problem with you professors. First you want us to a blog entry, then 10 pages. Then it's a whole law review and then a book. What's next? A treatise?

Does it have the cartoon? And while we're on the subject, anyone dismisses Slippery Slope arguments in firearms law should read ALL THE WAY DOWN THE SLIPPERY SLOPE: GUN PROHIBITION IN ENGLAND AND SOME LESSONS FOR CIVIL LIBERTIES IN AMERICA Joseph E. Olson and David B. Kopel, Hamline Law Review, Vol. 22, April 1999.

i'd read the 10 pages, but then i'd have to read the whole book...

I think that is one of the most gracious reviews of a 10 page excerpt of a law review article that I have ever seen, Eugene.

Kudos for bringing it to our attention.

I just ordered a copy from Barnes &Noble as a result of the post. I hope that means that you are entitled to a commission.
