Anglo-American Law: A Comparison identifies the differences between the two systems of law and their constitutions. From Anglo-Saxon law to Brexit, from the Founders to President Trump, Arnheim compares the English and American legal systems and shows how they differ, particularly in matters of constitutional law, tort , civil and human rights, abortion, codification, freedom of religion, privacy, judicial review, defamation, and more. "Paraphrasing George Bernard Shaw, England and America are divided by a common legal heritage and a common legal terminology. Arnheim has produced a penetrating comparative study illuminating major similarities and differences of the two major legal systems within the so-called Anglo-American or Common Law family of legal systems. Noteworthy for its insights and up to the minute in coverage, experienced attorneys and law students have much to learn from this volume." --William E. Butler, Dickinson Law, Pennsylvania State University "Clear, crisp, and eminently readable, Michael Arnheim's Anglo-American Law offers readers a well-planned comparative exploration of two great Common Law jurisdictions. Addressing topics ranging from judicial and legislative lawmaking to free speech and protection of privacy, the text colorfully explains key differences and commonalities, supported by vivid excerpts from cases and statutes spanning centuries on both sides of the Atlantic. The text is lucid, insightful, and occasionally provocative." --Vincent R. Johnson, Interim Dean and Charles E. Cantu Distinguished Professor of Law, St. Mary's University School of Law.
