This chapter explains the 1990s as a time when Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) or the antilaw movement was being vigorously sold to the American people. It talks about Professor Kagan, who wrote about formal adversarial litigation and Stewart Macaulay, who weighed in on the arguments. It also includes that the San Francisco Chronicle weighed in on the author's theory of “coercive harmony” via Norman Larson, and George McGovern who wrote apologetically about the tort reform battle. The chapter analyses the publication of the author's Mintz lecture on Controlling Processes that came in 1996, which stimulated correspondence between her and psychologists who specialize in cults and the deprogramming of people. It explores letters that commented on disparate issues providing advice to younger anthropologists like David Price, who was dealing with the taboo subject of militarism and anthropology.

Keywords:   Alternative Dispute Resolution, Professor Kagan, antilaw movement, Stewart Macaulay, advice, formal adversarial litigation, coercive harmony, correspondence, 1990s, letters
