A legal scholar and sociologist, Flood spent years observing a large US law firm from the inside--much like an embedded journalist, but with the perspective of a researcher on the theory & practice of legal organizations. What he analyzed resulted in a study cited by many scholars over the years as the ultimate account of the inner workings of a corporate law firm. Adds a foreword by Lynn Mather.
