The second edition of this book has been updated to cover essential developments in caselaw, as well as other important changes in American law, during the last five years. The fundamental rules, court cases, concepts and trends of each key subject in American law are presented in a narrative tailored to the reader without an American legal background. Each chapter covers a major area of law, summarizes the leading doctrines, analyzes recurring, current and developing trends, highlights areas of contemporary debate, offers streamlined versions of precedent-setting cases, raises questions for further discussion, and lists important vocabulary words.

This book is ideal for readers who want to understand the contemporary American legal system at a more than superficial level, but who are not currently studying to become American lawyers. The style, organization and content make the book attractive for such readers as those planning on entering law school; paralegal assistants; students of American law outside of the United States; American undergraduates taking a course in American law and/or in a pre-law program; and graduate level students in subjects other than American law. The size, weight and price of the book are tailored to make the book attractive to students.

“...This book is well organized, well written, and covers an extraordinary amount of material . . . It belongs in the library of any institution with a pre-law, undergraduate, or graduate program with courses in American law.” — Legal Information ALERT, Volume 25, Issue #6 (on the first edition)
