Exploring recent events such as the McDonald’s case, the Tobacco Wars, the Oklahoma City Bombing, and the O.J. Simpson trial, this book captures the essential arguments concerning such important issues as free speech, crime and punishment, the two-party system, and tort reform, and then supports them with the critical facts, statistics, and citations to respected authorities. This book is perfect for practicing attorneys, consumer advocates, and members of the press, who wish to be armed with an arsenal of knowledge and information concerning the central legal issues which face Americans today.
