This newest addition to the Black's Law Dictionary Series is an easy-to-access and completely up-to-date version of the world's most trusted and authoritative legal dictionary. It is based entirely on the widely-acclaimed 7th edition of Black's Law Dictionary, and has been edited by Bryan A. Garner, the nation's preeminent legal lexicographer. This Second Pocket Edition packs more than 10,000 terms into a single compact volume that is easy to read and even easier to carry. It is the essential companion dictionary to the Standard edition, or as a stand-alone legal tool. Definitions are accurate, brief, and clear. Black's is more than a dictionary--it is a reference that defines, explains and amplifies legal meaning. Helpful extras in the second edition include a dictionary guide and the complete U.S. Constitution.
