Highly readable . . . . interdisciplinary history of a high order. -- The Historian Well-written and superbly documented . . . . Both physicians and lawyers will find this book useful and fascinating. -- Journal of the American Medical Association This is the first book-length historical study of medical malpractice in 19th-century America and it is exceedingly well done . . . . The author reveals that, beginning in the 1840s, Americans began to initiate malpractice lawsuits against their physicians and surgeons. Among the reasons for this development were the decline in the belief in divine providence, increased competition between physicians and medical sects, and advances in medical science that led to unrealistically high expectations of the ability of physicians to cure . . . . This book is well written, often entertaining and witty, and is historically accurate, based on the best secondary, as well as primary sources from the time period. Highly recommended. -- Choice Adept at not only traditional historical research but also cultural studies, the author treats the reader to an intriguing discussion of how 19th-century Americans came truly to see their bodies differently . . . . a sophisticated new standard in the field of malpractice history. -- The Journal of the Early Republic By far the best compilation and analysis of early medical malpractice cases I have seen . . . . this excellently crafted study is bound to be of interest to a large number of readers. -- James C. Mohr, author of Abortion in America: The Origins and Evolution of a National Policy

Seeking an answer to the question "Why did New Yorkers take so many more injury suits to the Supreme Court after 1870?" Randolph E. Bergstrom blends the perspectives of social and cultural history with legal scholarship to explain how New Yorkers came to pioneer in the litigiousness that present-day Americans find so familiar. Tracing the dramatic rise in injury lawsuits in New York City as the nation entered the twentieth century, Bergstrom sets out to find reasons for the increase, moving from the city's streets, its homes, businesses, and law offices to its courtrooms. He looks at court cases and the forms of danger to be found in the city, at the profiles of the different parties to disputes and the legal professionals involved. Examining the outcomes and consequences of such legal proceedings, his exploration leads back to the injured New Yorkers themselves to find out if a fundamental shift in their legal consciousness night not be behind the change in behavior. In Courting Danger, the parallels to our own time are readily apparent; current cries of legal crisis echo those of a hundred years ago. Charges of excessive litigation and unwarranted use of law streamed from the offices of businessmen, politicians, judges, and bar associations then as they do now. Bergstrom makes it clear that then, as now, lawyers who represented injury victims were attacked as unethical ambulance chasers; jurors were accused of an incapacity to reason, and of acting only on the whims of sympathy. Just as thoughtful surveys of our contemporary landscape have concluded, Bergstrom's close analysis of the injury suits that New Yorkers pursued in 1870, 1890, and 1910 shows that except for correctly detecting the increase itself, those lamenting the change missed the mark in describing and explaining it. The reality of injury litigation, he says, should give us pause when we assess current claims of crisis. Courting Danger will be rewarding reading for legal historians, sociolegal scholars, and historians of American social, urban, labor, and economic life.

This new and updated edition of Norgren and Nanda's classic text brings their examination of American cultural pluralism and the law up to date through the Clinton administration. While maintaining their emphasis on the concept of cultural diversity as it relates to the law in the United States, new and updated chapters reflect recent relevant court cases bearing on culture, race, gender, and class, with particular attention paid to local and state court opinions. Drawing on court materials, statutes and codes, and legal ethnographies, the text analyzes the ongoing negotiations and accommodations via the mechanism of law between culturally different groups and the larger society. An important text for courses in American government, society and the law, cultural studies, and civil rights.
