Friedman explains the development of civil and criminal law in the context of history, starting with the adoption of the Constitution and ending with events in the twenty-first century, including the disputed election of 2000. Unlike many similar books, this title analyzes changes in American society and outlines how our laws (as enacted by Congress and state legislatures) and our Courts have adapted to those situations. Alan Nebelthau reads with the authority of a seasoned professor. His low-key style helps make a reader-friendly text even more accessible. But where LAW IN AMERICA truly succeeds is in Friedman's ability to place legal occurrences in context, both factually and legally. D.J.S. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
