Interest in American legal history has boomed in recent years, yet until now there have been no adequate texts for classroom use. This book fills that gap, and is a comprehensive text that considers American legal history in a social, political and economic context. It examines the workings of legal institutions, including regulatory bodies and the police, issues such as crime and punishment, deviancy and dependency, slavery, civil rights, and the changing legal status of the family and women.
