Overview

This new and updated edition of Norgren and Nanda's classic text brings their examination of American cultural pluralism and the law up to date through the Clinton administration. While maintaining their emphasis on the concept of cultural diversity as it relates to the law in the United States, new and updated chapters reflect recent relevant court cases bearing on culture, race, gender, and class, with particular attention paid to local and state court opinions. Drawing on court materials, statutes and codes, and legal ethnographies, the text analyzes the ongoing negotiations and accommodations via the mechanism of law between culturally different groups and the larger society. An important text for courses in American government, society and the law, cultural studies, and civil rights.
