520    Whatever your background, if you seek an understanding of 
       the legal system of the United States, this is the book 
       for you. American Law in a Global Context is an elegant 
       and erudite introduction to the American legal system from
       a global perspective. It covers the law and lawyering 
       tools taught in the first year of law school, explaining 
       the underlying concepts and techniques of the common law 
       used in U.S. legal practice. The ideas central to the 
       development and practice of American law, as well as 
       constitutional law, contracts, property, criminal law, and
       courtroom procedure, are all presente.
