Volume 3 of The Cambridge History of Law in America covers the period from 1920 to the present, 'the American Century'. It charts a century of legal transformations, and shows how, politically, socially and culturally, the twentieth century was when law became ubiquitous in American life. Among the themes discussed are innovation in the disciplinary and regulatory use of law, changes wrought by the intersection of law with explosive struggles around race, gender, class and sexuality, the emergence and development of the particularly American legal discourse of 'rights', and the expansion of this discourse to the international arena. The main focus of this last volume of The Cambridge History of Law in America is the accelerating pace of change, change which we can be confident will continue. The Cambridge History of Law in America has been made possible by the generous support of the American Bar Foundation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This volume offers much legal-historical scholarship of a high order. The extended bibliographical essays that conclude the work show the depth of learning underpinning the enterprise ... This is a volume that amply repays close reading and reflection, and at its best escapes the bounds of a reference work and offers a powerful historical vision.' Edinburgh Law Review
'Grossberg and Tomlin present this fine edited collection of essays on the law in the US...The chapter authors, leading experts in their fields, present lively, well-written pieces...Of great value is each volume's long, comprehensive bibliographic essay, which is over 120 pages in each book. A very good and enriching treatment of the topics covered, as well as a good general survey.' Choice
