  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Blake Maddux | 11/28/2013

    " The kind of book that an eminent scholar such as Lawrence Friedman could have written in crayon with his opposite hand. While juggling balls of fire with the other. Blindfolded. While sleeping. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nathan | 10/7/2013

    " This should be retitled Law in America: A Progressive's Short History. It did have an absolutely piercing and significant last few chapters on the modern Media-cracy. "

    " Listened to the audio book. It's a good intro to basic concepts and history of law "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 aPriL MEOWS often with scratching | 2/27/2013

    " This an EXTREMELY brief overview. Only basic highlights in American legal history are discussed. That said, if you have a curiosity but not a passion to pick up a little bit of history, this is perfect for a weekend read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Noah | 10/28/2012

    " Dull and surprisingly uninformative. Most of the history in this book is very basic stuff, and when it comes to his broader analysis, Friedman is too noncommittal. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 3/2/2012

    " Good brief intro to the history of American Law. Short and to the point, the book gives you the majorhistorical developments with suggestions for further reading on all of them. "

    " Short on history, long on opinion. Most times more of an essay than a history. "
