With an introduction by Roscoe Pound. Haynes offers a comprehensive
overview of the factors that determine judicial selection in the
United States. It is also a useful history of the subject from the
colonial era to 1943. Written with input from Pound, Haynes offers a
sociological analysis enriched with an impressive body of statistical
data. He examines such factors as class and region affiliation, and
whether elected judges are more liberal than their tenured colleagues.
He also compares American practices to those in Great Britain, Canada,
France, Italy, Germany, Scandinavia and Latin America. Warmly received
when it was first published, it is recommended by Willard Hurst in The
Growth of American Law: The Lawmakers (see p. 454).
