Historic U.S. Court Cases, 1690-1990: An Encyclopedia (American Law and Society) (AMERICAN LAW AND SOCIETY SERIES) by John W. Johnson

Written in plain language, for students of history and interested laypersons as well as lawyers and academic legal specialists, this compendium of essays on landmark court cases presents a chronicle of the US from the perspective of legal history. The 171 essays, written by 80 contributors including lawyers, political scientists, and historians, portray the antagonists, the issues, and the inherent drama of historic cases and explain their importance in the development of the American judicial system. The essays run from about 1,000 to 5,000 words, depending on the importance of the case, and each essay concludes with a selected bibliography. Includes an index of decisions as well as a subject index. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
