NEWBERG ON CLASS ACTIONS (1985). 2nd Edition, By Herbert B. Newberg.

Newberg on Class Actions is an ambitious five-volume work on the procedural device the use of which has grown enormously since its incorporation in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. One might expect that an author who devotes the energy necessary to produce a work of this magnitude would assume an advocate’s stance favoring his chosen subject. Newberg’s presentation, however, is remarkably objective and even-handed. The major part of the volumes is, as it should be, given over to the traditional textbook treatment of the law surrounding the class action device. Discussion of class actions in the federal system probably preponderates, but the author has not neglected the state systems.
