Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Titles in [the Contemporary World Issues] series offer historical overviews and discussions of controversial issues. . . . Each volume includes primary documents, agencies and organizations, a glossary, an index, print & nonprint resources, a chronology, and biographies. Recommended." - Library Media Connection

"[D]escribes, in an easy, comprehensible style, the courts, jurisdictions, and legal systems of the United States . . . would be valuable for those wishing an introduction and brief history of court systems in the United States. It provides a solid, although not too taxing, overview of the subject for patrons of public and community college libraries, or even advanced high school students." - American Reference Books Annual

"One would be hard-pressed to identify another work of this length that would provide a better overview of courts and trials in the United States." - The Justice System Journal
