A Nation of Adversaries: How the Litigation Explosion is Reshaping America

A Nation of Adversaries examines the cultural implications of our current heavily litigious environment. The problems of increased litigation, the author argues, are far more widespread than an increased judicial workload and corporations with heavy litigation burdens�they affect contemporary society. The increasingly competitive nature of politics and personal interactions (think "road rage") are symptomatic, he argues, of the prominent place of litigation in America�resulting in a society built increasingly on aggression and competition rather than civility and compromise.
