With the publication of the wonderful review symposium on Lloyd Burton's Worship and Wilderness, Martha Umphrey completes her responsibilities as editor of the review essay section of Law & Society Review. I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for her excellent work. The series of essays published under her guidance have contributed to our intellectual community in important ways.

Professor Elizabeth Heger Boyle is the new review section editor. Through 2006, she will continue the practice of recent years of publishing review essays. However, beginning with books published in 2005, the Law & Society Review will return to shorter reviews of single books rather than longer review essays. This change from essays to shorter reviews will take effect with Volume 41 (2007).

If you are willing to be contacted about reviewing books from time to time, please send your interest areas and contact information to Professor Boyle at boyle@socsci. …
