Description
In this new edition, Oxford University Press has given  what used to be A Dictionary of Modern Legal Usage a new name: Garner's Dictionary of Legal Usage. With the name change comes an equally sweeping development of the content. The idea with this edition was to bring the book into the 21st century with newer (and more) citiations—and to replace all the uncited illustrative quotationd with citable examples. This undertaking alone involved a monumental effort, and the book has benefited from it both by improved copiousness of illustration and by enhanced accuracy of verbal assessments. I have continues to resist the lobbying efforts of certain writers to have citations to their work removed. (Yes, some have actually tried to pressure Oxford University Press with letter-writing campaigns.) Why have I done this? I believe that I should remain dispassionate in citing my evidence.
