Product Details


Even otherwise knowledgeable citizens will not understand what they read in the press about the Republican movement for ‘tort reform’ without reading Un-Making Law. Jay Feinman lays out the actual facts, and shows that what masquerades as ‘reform’ is better described as a deliberate attempt to repeal the historic, democratic reform of tort and contract law that aimed to protect the general public. Un-Making Law clears away the false rhetoric of the ‘reform’ movement and makes it possible for citizens to decide whether they really want to submit their welfare totally to the market. Feinman thinks not, and so do I.–Stanley N. Katz, acting director, Law and Public Affairs at Woodrow Wilson School, Princeton University

Un-Making Law . . . points out that George Bush’s agenda involves more than playing cowboy in Iraq and giving tax breaks to fat cats. It also includes enacting tort reform, which . . . would ultimately reduce legal protections available to ordinary Americans while increasing those same protections for HMOs, drug companies, and other manufacturers.’–Frank Rubino, Philadelphia Weekly

‘I highly recommend this book . . . It recognizes that tort law is not the only target in this radical campaign to reduce consumer rights. Today’s neo-conservatives also seek absolute property rights and contracts free of government regulation. Feinman’s book is a thunderbolt.’–Michael Rustad, Trial Magazine
