Studies in Law, Politics, and Society


This volume of "Studies in Law, Politics, and Society" contains an international and interdisciplinary array of legal scholarship. Presenting diverse theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches, this work illuminates the law's response to its social context as well as the way law shapes that context. It shows how legal scholars contribute to public debate about contemporary issues as well as how they articulate the nature of rights and the limits of law.
