9780195031751: Justice Without Law?

Why are Americans the most legalistic and litigious people in the world? What does that say about our values, our ideals, the quality of our social relationship? What are the benefits to our society? These are among the questions that Auerbach considers in Justice Without Law? The first history of dispute settlement in United States.

Review:


"An excellent work...on systems of nonjudicial dispute settlement used in various American communities throughout the country's history...Beautifully written."--Journal of American History


"[Auerbach's] provocative essay is an important contribution."--American Historical Review


"Admirably succinct and lucid...Auerbach is surely right in stressing that law and courts are essential in a highly individualistic society that proclaims fidelity to formal equality."--The New York Times Book Review


"An insightful and scholarly historical survey of the myriad ways in which disputes have been handled 'outside' the law and usually, though not necessarily, without lawyers."--New York Law Journal


"Auerbach masterfully chronicles how the American legal profession has consistently routed the forces of nonconfrontational dispute resolution throughout American history. The details are illuminating, the theme clear, the writing skillful."--American Political Science Review


"A scholarly yet moving legal history of two conflicting emotions in America: the yearning for a shared and interdependent community versus the perhaps even stronger claims of individuals for their economic freedoms."--Judicature


"This lively and penetrating exploration illuminates the complex relationship between law and community."--Marc Galanter, New York University


"Auerbach's descriptions...comprise a complex and dramatic saga...Auerbach treats the reader to an entertaining and informative medley that would be either monotonous or cacophonous in the hands of a less skillful composer."--Harvard Law Review
