Book summary

The ability to adapt to the continual changes necessitated by American freedoms is one of the hallmarks of the American justice system. Law in America celebrates the history of this complex, ever-shifting process, detailing landmark cases, famous trials, and the influence of the media, as well as chronicling how popular culture has viewed lawyers and the judicial system over the last 250 years. The authors also profile individuals who have interpreted existing law and carved out new legal frontiers. Generously illustrated throughout, Law in America features images of the evolution of courthouse architecture; engravings and paintings depicting the legal system at work by artists including Thomas Hart Benton, Jacob Lawrence, John Singleton Copley, and Norman Rockwell; photographs and portraits from landmark cases and decision makers; and famous newspaper headlines, political cartoons, and movie stills. Includes 180 color and black-and-white photographs and illustrations. [via]
