International library of essays in law and society


Seron (U. of California, Irvine) compiles an anthology of readings that have become standard texts used in the study of law and society. The 17 readings span from 1961 to 1992, coinciding with the founding of the modern Law and Society Association, and are from legal journals and one book. Authors of the articles are scholars from different countries; some discuss Korea, Japan, Mexico, Jamaica, Argentina, and Brazil, in addition to law and societal aspects in the US. Topics encompass socio-legal theory, disputing, courts, lawyers, policing, and administrative enforcement and regulation. The index is of names only.
