Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2004

Our legal system has shaped American life more than any other single factor in the past 200 years. With slow but deliberate pacing, Professor Friedman examines its roots in British common law and follows the changes brought about over the years by cultural, economic, political, and geographic shifts. A distinguished legal scholar, Professor Friedman examines closely the landmark cases that reflect these major shifts in emphasis, from Marbury to Roe v. Wade. Accompanying his painstakingly thoughtful 14 lectures is an eighty-page booklet that reads like a textbook summary of the lectures, in some cases word for word. And in case the listener wants additional information, there's a bibliography and suggestions for further reading appended. P.E.F. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
