This chapter argues that conventional law textbooks tend to follow a stereotyped pattern. The series this book belongs to is designed as a series of titles that will compete, supplement, and occasionally even replace this stereotype. This book attempts to analyze some of the sources of the dissatisfaction with the legal literature in England and provide a tentative theoretical basis for the series.

Keywords: stereotype; law textbooks; legal literature
