Quote It! On Indexes
"Sir Frederick Pollock used to say that a man who would publish a book without an index ought to be banished ten miles beyond Hell where the Devil himself could not go because of the stinging nettles." -- Roscoe Pound, review of Edward H. Levi's classic, An Introduction to Legal Reasoning (1949) in 60 Yale LJ 200 (1951).
In Levi's defense, his 74 page classic was a reprint of his article published at 15 U. Chi. L. Rev. 501 (1948). [JH]
