Quotes & Awards

  • “Friedman has deftly distilled 225 years of jurisprudence into a coherent, trenchant explanation of how American law has evolved.”

    Washington Post Book World

  • “Alan Nebelthau reads with the authority of a seasoned professor. His low-key style helps  make a reader-friendly text even more accessible. But where Law in America truly succeeds is in Friedman’s ability to place legal occurrences in context, both factually and legally.”


  • “A concise and lucid overview of the development of the law as it parallels the track of American social, economic, political, and cultural history.”

    Library Journal

  • “An elegant, thoughtful survey of the parallel growth of America’s legal culture and the nation itself.”

    Kirkus Reviews
