Throughout Americaís history, our laws have been a reflection of who we are, of what we value, of who has control. They embody our societyís genetic code. In the masterful hands of the subjectís greatest living historian, the story of the evolution of our laws serves to lay bare the deciding struggles over power and justice that have shaped this country from its birth pangs to the present. Law in America is a supreme example of the historianís art, its brevity a testament to the great elegance and wit of its composition.
