This essay in jurisprudence is a well-wrought urn created by a judicious choice of Aristotelian, Thomistic, Existential materials and much more. Rodes might characterize his synthesis, borrowing from Tennyson's Ulysses, as a book that is part of all he has met. And Rodes has met many authors and many people in the course of years of study and living, individuals motivated by diverse convictions and ideals. He has tested what is good and held fast to that which answered his own aspirations. The book tries to describe, in the terms of Cicero, what lawyering must be-interest in everything that touches men in daily life as they meet in social intercourse or transact affairs.
