Anthropologist Laura Nader narrates this cross-cultural study of institutionalized conflict resolution. Shows how, in a remote Mexican village, face-to-face conflict among a small population demands swift and effective redress for injustices, while in the United States consumers with defective products are lost in a morass of frustrating claims, slow and costly legal action, ineffective public agencies, and unresponsive corporate entities. Studies are based on a 10-year study of 5000 consumer complaints. She discusses the legal procedures and remedies, and comments on the problems of an impersonal law and on large corporations.
Producer, Terry Kay Rockefeller ; narrator, Jacqueline Judd ; editor, Adrienne Miesmer ; executive producer, Michael Ambrosini.
