Chris Guthrie, Dean & John Wade-Kent Syverud, Professor of Law Vanderbilt University Law School In this compulsively readable book, Friedman and Hayden provide an insightful and occasionally irreverent introduction to law and the legal system. For anyone who wants to understand what law is and how it operates in America, this is a must read.

Marc Galanter, Professor of Law Emeritus, University of Wisconsin Law School American Law is a wise and illuminating introduction to the joints and sinews of the American legal system. In a relaxed conversational voice, it delivers a complex and sophisticated view of the workings of our legal order.

Övrig information

Lawrence M. Friedman, the Marion Rice Kirkwood Professor of Law at Stanford University School of Law, is an internationally renowned, prize-winning legal historian. He has been the leading expositor of the history of American law to a global audience of lawyers and lay people alike-and a leading figure in the law and society movement. Professor Friedman is particularly well known for treating legal history as a branch of general social history. From his award-winning History of American Law (1973), to his American Law in the 20th Century (2003), his canonical works have become classic textbooks in legal and undergraduate education. He is also a prolific author on crime and punishment, and his numerous books on those subjects have been translated into multiple languages. Grant M. Hayden is Professor of Law at Hofstra University School of Law. He has written over twenty law review articles, essays, and book reviews on voting rights, labor law, and corporate law subjects. His articles have been published in the Michigan Law Review, California Law Review, North Carolina Law Review, George Washington Law Review, Fordham Law Review, and the Election Law Journal, among others. In 2008, he was a Visiting Professor of Law at Vanderbilt Law School, where he taught Labor Law and Voting Rights Law. He is currently on the editorial board of the Regional Labor Review and serves as a referee for the Election Law Journal, Jurimetrics, and Law & Social Inquiry.
