    Just over thirty years ago, David Engel published “The Oven Bird’s Song: Insiders, Outsiders, and Personal Injuries in an American Community” in Law and Society Review. Engel’s research revealed the attitudes that residents in a rural Illinois community brought to contested cultural issues regarding personal injury, dispute resolution, social change, and law. The article quickly became one of the signature contributions to the law and society movement, a kind of instant classic.
