This introductory explains the coverage of this book, which is about the history of law's engagement with popular culture. It suggests that this engagement goes back in the mists of time, to the Old Testament, perhaps beyond, and it reached a crescendo in Ancient Greece. And during the 17th and 18th centuries, the literature became filled with images of law, lawyers, and legal practice. This book presents a collection of chapters which examines the representation of law in literature, motion pictures, and television drama.
