Abstract

This short essay attempts no intellectual history of Morton Horwitz. Others have already pursued that task with accomplishment (see, for example, Ernst 1993). Honoring the spirit of Horwitz's Toronto address, however, my comments will range widely across the terrain of American legal historyas I see it. My point of departure is, of course, furnished by the subject immediately at hand-Horwitz's first Transformation of American Law.
