Social Structure of Right and Wrong, Revised Edition / Edition 2by Donald Black
Pub. Date: 12/01/1997
Publisher: Emerald Group Publishing
This revised paperback edition features a new prologue and updated citation. The book extends the theoretical approach of Black's classic Behavior of Law (1976) to a dramatically larger universe: the handling of conflict across societies and history. It also introduces and illustrates Black's "pure sociology," a new theoretical paradigm applicable to human behavior of every kind.
