The Politics Of Law : A Progressive Critique, Third Edition Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The Politics of Law is the most widely read critique of the nature and role of the law in American society.

This revised edition continues the book's concrete focus on the major subjects and fields of law.

New essays on emerging fields and the latest trends and cases have been added to updated versions of the now-classic essays from earlier editions.A unique assortment of leading scholars and practitioners in law and related disciplines,political science, economics, sociology, criminology, history, and literature,raise basic questions about law, challenging long-held ideals like the separation of law from politics, economics, religion, and culture.

They address such issues contextually and with a keen historical perspective as they explain and critique the law in a broad range of areas.This third edition contains essays on all of the subjects covered in the first year of law school while continuing the book's tradition of accessibility to non-law-trained readers.

Insightful and powerful, The Politics of Law makes sense of the debates about judicial restraint and the range of legal controversies so central to American public life and culture.
