Paul F. Campos' 1998 book, Jurismania, highlights the problem of the overgrowth of laws.  This page will expand on the themes in that book, and will draw in other resources from all over Western history.

In particular:

  1. Are there objective measures for too much law?
  2. What concrete examples exist of the direct, negative effect of too much law in any area?
  3. Which spokespersons are the leading voices pro- and con?
  4. What practical approaches are available for reducing the overgrowth of laws?

Chapter one of the book is here, courtesy of N.Y. Times.
