- Professor Friedman explores the history of the American legal system, which had its foundations in English common law, but has grown, developed, and changed over the years. He shows how the legal system has been involved in every major issue in American life: race relations, economics, the family, crime, and issues of equality. He also considers how the public and private perceptions of liberty have changed over time.
