Publisher Comments:

In this brilliant and immensely readable book, Lawrence M. Friedman tells the whole fascinating story of American law from its beginnings in the colonies to the present day. By showing how close the life of the law is to the economic and political life of the country, he makes a complex subject understandable and engrossing. A History of American Law presents the achievements and failures of the American legal system in the context of America's commercial and working world, family practices, and attitudes toward property, government, crime, and justice.

Now completely revised and updated, this groundbreaking work incorporates new material regarding slavery, criminal justice, and twentieth-century law. For laymen and students alike, this remains the only comprehensive authoritative history of American law.

Book News Annotation:

In this update of the 1985 edition cited in Books for College Libraries, 3rd ed., Friedman (law, Stanford U.) presents a social history tracing law in America from the Colonial and frontier eras to the present. The accessible reader's main emphasis remains on the 19th century but treatment of such contemporary legal issues as environmental law, the death penalty, and family law has been expanded and in some cases, reflects the author's evolving views. He concludes that the US legal system is unlikely to change dramatically in the foreseeable future. A biographical essay offers insight into uneven coverage of this subject. The first edition appeared in 1973.
