Crossing Boundaries: Traditions and Transformations in Law and Society Research
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungPerhaps no idea is more emblematic of the field of law and society than crossing boundaries. From the founding of the Law and Society Association in the early 1960s, participating scholars aspired to create a field that crossed boundaries in at least two senses: by undertaking research that questioned and often bridged traditional methodological and disciplinary divisions, and by using nontraditional approaches to explore the interconnections between law and its social context. The essays in this book reflect both of these aspirations.Readers of this volume will find extended reflections on the practice of sociolegal research and the issues raised by the attempt to create an interdisciplinary field of study, as well as numerous examples of law and society scholarship which probe, transform, challenge, or bridge the boundaries between law and the social and cultural settings in which it operates.
