I find that I'm often overly critical as a reader of other scholarship, so that's one of the reasons I really like the idea of JOTWELL. It helps us find really good pieces and allows you to say so unashamedly.
The problem with JOTWELL, however, is that we're all busy and sometimes it takes too damn long to explain why something is good, especially when you're not an expert in the area but you just think: Hmm, that was really good. So, with that in mind, I want to draw attention to a few pieces I read recently and really liked. I'll put the links here and the abstracts after the jump. While I wouldn't say I quite agreed entirely with each of these pieces, I did really like them, find them helpful and instructive and interesting. That's about all one could hope for really. (And for what it's worth, I don't know the authors of either of these pieces though after reading their work, I wish I did.)

Professor Fried has penned a couple of excellent articles, and her book, The Progressive Assault on Laissez Faire: Robert Hale and the First Law and Economics Movement (1998) is certainly a must read.
Jotwell is indeed a wonderful (fairly) new online resource. Michael Froomkin has assembled a nice group of editors from a wide range of legal domains (I'm particularly fond of the 'Jurisprudence' material). I hope other Prawfs readers will likewise come to appreciate its value.

Thank you very very much for the kind words about Jotwell. Note that we would like to have more sections, so that if there's a subject we don't cover and that you would be willing to help us organize, please get in touch.
