This extensive study of class-action lawsuits by the RAND Corporation's Institute for Civil Justice is a comprehensive treatment of America's rather unique system of aggregative litigation. Class Action Dilemmas looks at the current heated topics of debate, such as whether these suits provide concrete protection for the public at large and whether they hinder legitimate business. It includes court documents, interviews with parties to these suits, as well as other legal records. The study also documents contemporary trends and offers proposals to reform the system in the future.
