Back cover copy

In contemporary American society, law has nearly achieved the status of civil religion. Legal issues pervade many aspects of daily life; the media report aggressively on trials, pending legislation, and new decisions by the courts. Legally trained executives now run major motion picture studios, corporations, and universities. They speak to each other in the language of jurisprudence. Understanding the law today is an important aspect of literacy in American culture.show more
