LAWRENCE M. FRIEDMAN is the Marion Rice Kirkwood Professor of Law at Stanford University. An internationally renowned, prize-winning legal historian, Friedman has for a generation been the leading expositor of the history of American law to a global audience of lawyers and lay people alike--and a leading figure in the law & society movement. He is particularly well known for treating legal history as a branch of general social history. From his award-winning 'History of American Law,' first published in 1973, to his 'American Law in the 20th Century,' published in 2003, his canonical works have become classic textbooks in legal and undergraduate education.
