Summary: Law touches our lives every day. Thousands of rules affect our work and play, what we buy, and how we get along with our neighbors. As a nation, we often try to settle our biggest problems-sex discrimination, the death penalty, desegregation, affirmative action-through law. This book meets the need of students and general readers alike for a comprehensive introduction to the American legal system.

Rich in anecdote, historical detail, and scholarship, this ...show morehighly praised book has been updated and revised to take account of the latest important cases and legislation, including the continuing deregulatory movement in Congress and the increasing importance of statewide legislative propositions and referendums. It explains how laws are made, from the United States and state constitutions and legislatures to the small-town zoning board, and how law is administered by courts and agencies of every sort. It describes the enormous variety of law in our society: antitrust law, family law, torts (the law of accidents) and the new call for tort law reform, criminal justice, rules for packaging medicine and food. And it brilliantly explores the way changes in law mirror, and sometimes guide, changes in society. ...show less
