    University of Chicago Press 2011; US$ 22.50

    Conundrums, puzzles, and perversities: these are Leo Katz’s stock-in-trade, and in Why the Law Is So Perverse , he focuses on four fundamental features of our legal system, all of which seem to not make sense on some level and to demand explanation.
