Description

In 1984, activist lawyer Steve Bachmann wrote an article titled "Lawyers, Law and Social Change" for the NYU Review of Law and Social Change. Widely read for years by progressives, cited in journals, and assigned in law school classes, in 2001 it became the title essay of a book-length collection from Unlimited Publishing LLC. In 2010, the NYU Review of Law and Social Change asked Bachmann to update his readers in a keynote address at the observance of its 40th anniversary. The NYURLSC also published a new article by Bachmann discussing the progress-or regression-which had occurred since 1984. Both the speech and article have been added to this new edition. You don't need to be a lawyer to benefit from reading this book. The American social contract of the 20th century is spiraling the proverbial drain in today's increasingly polarized political climate. The stakes are huge for working people. If you are among the 99% who work for a living wage and want the same for your children, this book is for you.show more
