Legal Spectator & More By Jacob A. Stein (The Magazine Group, 320 pages, $20) Those who have spent any time with trial lawyer Jake Stein know he is a man of wide interests and sly wit. These qualities among others are on display in Legal Spectator & More, Stein’s third collection of articles culled from such publications as Washington Lawyer, The American Scholar, The Times Literary Supplement, and The Wilson Quarterly. The more than 50 pieces assembled in this book are grouped under the rubrics “Lawyers,” “Judges,” “People,” and “This & That” and include such intriguing titles as “Atticus Finch, LLP � Formerly PC, Formerly LLC,” “Peter Arno Meets Somerset Maugham,” and “Clinton Asquith, and Schopenhauer.” Writes Stein in the preface to this charming volume: “Everything that follows has appeared before. It is all second-hand. And maybe, some years from now, a battered copy of this book will find its way into the dusty corner of a fine old second-hand bookstore. There it may keep company with William Hazlitt or Logan Pearsall Smith and if good luck holds out it may stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Max Beerbohm. Time and the requirements for shelf space do strange things. Unknown scribblers stand with the very best. Not because merit places them there but because of the fit. This book you hold in your hand is a slim volume. Just the right size to press in at the end of the shelf to keep the other books tightly and nicely in place.” Endangered Species Deskbook By Lawrence R. Liebesman and Rafe Peterson (The Environmental Law Institute, 323 pages, $89.95) The Endangered Species Act of 1973 has resulted in the listing of more than 1,200 species as threatened or endangered, with roughly half these species having at least 80 percent of their habitat on private lands. In the Endangered Species Deskbook, primary authors and editors Lawrence Liebesman and Rafe Peterson of the D.C. office of Holland & Knight strive to make the ESA, other applicable federal laws and treaties, and implementing regulations and policies understandable to practitioners. They address such issues as how species are listed, the designation of critical habitat of endangered species, habitat conservation plans, enforcement, federal and state interface on endangered species, Indian lands and the ESA, the international application of the ESA, and contact information for users.
