Purcell reviews Zelden on Bush v. Gore

Edward Purcell, New York Law School, takes up Charles Zelden's Bush v. Gore, a contribution to the Landmark Cases and American Society series of the University Press of Kansas, in an H-Law review. Professor Purcell concludes:
The subtlety and breadth of Zelden’s analysis precludes easy summary. Suffice it to say that, even in abridged form, the book tells the story of Bush v. Gore ably and comprehensively, treats highly controverted issues with fairness and intelligence, and offers a range of insights and conclusions sufficient to enlighten and stimulate any reader.
