A doctoral dissertation written for a Ph.D. degree at the University of Rochester in 1968, updated for publication. "...one of the dominant influences on the rise of the legal profession in America is a decrease in utopianism, in religious and material terms. The utopian spirit awakened hopes for a lawyerless society, with disharmony and wrangling kept to a minimum. The decline in utopianism and the rise of the bar go hand in hand."
