Description - Lawyers, Lawsuits, and Legal Rights by Thomas F. Burke

Lawsuits over coffee burns, playground injuries, even bad teaching: litigation "horror stories" create the impression that Americans are greedy, quarrelsome, and suehappy. The truth, as this book makes clear, is quite different. What Thomas Burke describes in Lawyers, Lawsuits, and Legal Rights is a nation not of litigious citizens, but of litigious policies - laws that promote the use of litigation in resolving disputes and implementing public policies. The first clear and comprehensive account of the national politics of litigation, Lawyers, Lawsuits, and Legal Rights provides a new way to understand and address the "litigiousness" of American society.
