Allan Hutchinson, It's All in the Game, legal scholarship


Some of my friends tell me that, as a general proposition, as men get older they become more conservative, but as women get older they become more radical. Allan Hutchinson's new book, It's All in the Game, tells us little about the latter, but it does seem to confirm the former. For almost twenty five years, Allan Hutchinson has been a very high profile "North American crit." There is little doubt that he has been Canada's most prolific and outspoken critical legal scholar. He has been a master trasher, combining powerful critical analytical skills with a wicked wit and an enviable writing style to produce some critical classics. But now, he springs a book that represents a significant departure, or perhaps even a retreat, in his scholarship.
