In this fifth edition of his bestselling classic, Jay Feinman provides an authoritative and up-to-date overview of the American legal system. In the years since the publication of the fourth edition, there have been many important developments on the legal front. The Supreme Court has issued important decisions on presidential powers, freedom of religion, and personal liberty. Police shootings and the rise of Black Lives Matter has impacted the court system too. The rise of arbitration at the expense of jury trials has affected the rights of consumers, and internet law remains in a state of constant change. This fully updated fifth edition of Law 101 accounts for all these developments and more, as Feinman once again provides a clear introduction to American law. The book covers all the main subjects taught in the first year of law school, and discusses every facet of the American legal tradition, including constitutional law, the litigation process, and criminal, property, and contracts law. To illustrate how the legal system works, Feinman draws from noteworthy, infamous, and even outrageous examples and cases. We learn about the case involving scalding coffee that cost McDonald's half a million dollars, the murder trial in Victorian London that gave us the legal definition of insanity, and the epochal decision of Marbury vs. Madison that gave the Supreme Court the power to declare state and federal law unconstitutional. A key to learning about the law is understanding legal vocabulary, and Feinman helps by clarifying terms like "due process" and "equal protection," as well as by drawing distinctions between terms like "murder" and "manslaughter." Above all, Feinman reveals to readers of all kinds that despite its complexities and quirks, the law can be understood by everyone. Perfect for students contemplating law school, journalists covering legislature, or even casual fans of "court-television" shows, Law 101 is a clear and accessible introduction to the American legal system.
WHAT THIS BOOK IS ABOUT AND WHY IT IS IMPORTANT

This is the book the Banksters DO NOT want you to read!

G. Malcolm Doney, Author

The title of this Book conveys a great deal of what this subject is about.  It is the Bankster Busters’ Bible and carries the sub-title How to Fight the Banks and Win, which was the title of the first on-line publication by this author in 2009.

 So what exactly is a Bankster?  Well it sounds a lot like Gangster and the icon on the book’s cover is meant to convey that meaning. This title was bestowed upon the Banking industry during The Great Depression following the 1929 Stock Market Crash and in the opinion of the author no title was more justly deserved.  Since those terrible days deliberately orchestrated by Banksters, those interrelated industries that control our entire financial system have become even more skilled at the manipulation of the apparent value of fiat money and real assets to its advantage, all behind a mask of respectability, but to the considerable disadvantage of the American people and the rest of the world’s population.

In 1914 the Banking industry pulled its biggest confidence trick ever when it persuaded the American Congress and its then President to create the Federal Reserve – a private bank – and to delegate to the owners and controllers of that private bank the power to create and control the country’s legal tender – the US Dollar.

Once that scam was securely established as part of the system and the people got used to it, the powers of the Feds as they became known, were stealthily increased until most citizens in the United States, now mistakenly believe that it is a government department whose function is to control the economy by ironing out the excess highs and lows of natural market forces.  The truth is that it actually deliberately creates those excesses in order to subject Americans to the cruelest tax of all time, that of the hidden costs of the manipulation of the Dollar and other world currencies.  Examples of how this has worked to the disadvantage of Americans are the many stock market debacles and the manipulation of foreign currencies to force devaluations.
