Cahn's Review of Hartog's "Someday All This Will be Yours: A History of Inheritance and Old Age"

Over at Concurring Opinions, Naomi Cahn of George Washington University Law School recently reviewed Hendrik Hartog's "Someday All This Will be Yours: A History of Inheritance and Old Age" (Harvard University Press 2012).  Cahn wrote:
