Weekly Top Tens from the Social Science Research Network

Kelsen Bust
It is a bit alarming to see that Jeff Lipshaw's Cognition and Reason: Rethinking Kelsen in the Context of Contract and Business Law has made the top-ten list.  His article is supposed to appear in a book that I am editing, and my theory is that the American legal academy doesn't care about Hans Kelsen (pictured).  So, if Jeff's paper succeeds, the book is wrong, and Jeff's paper will never see the light of day!
