ISBN 1-58477-336-7. Cloth. $225. * This legislative history of the course of federal income tax laws as they have proceeded through Congress will be useful to those arguing or ruling on tax cases. The work collects the texts of the committee reports and discussions on the floor of Congress relating to all of the income tax provisions of the Revenue Acts from 1861 to 1938 that are of interpretive significance. Material is arranged act by act in inverse chronology. "The principle contribution is that it gathers together in compact and organized form these essential materials, which are otherwise scattered through many volumes of the Congressional Record, committee reports, and elsewhere. Many of these reports, particularly in the case of the earlier acts, are either unavailable or are extremely difficult or expensive to obtain. [T]he work has been carefully and thoroughly done.": A. H. Kent, American Bar Association Journal 25:479 cited in Marke, A Catalogue of the law Collection at New York University (1953) 852. Seidman's Legislative History of Federal Income and Excess Profits Tax Laws 1953-1939 is a two volume continuation also published by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.
