Description
Words are but the instruments by which meanings or intentions are expressed. The study of words, phrases and expressions in their meaning and behaviour is the stepping stone to enter the portal of law. As Justice Holmes said "A word .... is the skin of a living thought and may vary greatly in colour and content according to the circumstances and the time in which it is used." Legal lexicon in English thus flows as a continuous stream waved by newer coinages and more so, when trade and commerce add to the current.
The flagship as an authority
Mitra's Legal & Commercial Dictionary is by now the flagship of authority in legal vocabulary. The expansion of the horizon of jurisprudence in the English speaking world led by British and American statutes, judicial decisions and legal literature have been captured in all relevant areas while updating this edition with years of hard labour by the present author of eminence. In doing so, the book retains its distinctive character of moorings on the Indian law.
Focus on the hinterland of connotation
The distinctive feature of the book lies in its scholastic exposition of legal and commercial terms that delves into the "bottomless pit" of meanings drawn from interpretation clauses in different statutes, judicial pronouncements in various contexts and description in standard treatises of authority. Latin terms and maxims are defined as much as in use, quotations from scholarly publications decorate the treatment and forensic philosophy brilliantly spelt out in this rich and updated lexicon.
Collateral expressions of terms, phrases etc.
Another conspicuous feature of this monumental edition is the group of collateral expressions qualifying or centering around a legal term, exhaustively listed and also indexed for ready reference. A "Note" in dark shade draws attention of the reader to notable commentaries on critical terms or expressions.
The book will indeed add to the reservoir of knowledge in every law library and prove an indispensable companion to all lawyers, students and other users.
