Overview

Film and television interpretations of the legal system have captured the imagination of the American public, but how does the law really work? More specifically, how does it shape other social institutions and interact with other academic disciplines? Law, Justice, and Society: A Sociolegal Introduction offers a compelling overview of the law, its eventful history, and its sociological implications.

In this unique collaborative effort, renowned scholars Anthony Walsh and Craig Hemmens draw from their own research and first-hand experiences to examine the origins of the law; the history and development of the American legal system; the sociology of law; court structure; and the difference between civil and criminal law. This text provides students with a deeper understanding of five primary topics: The role of law in society, The courts, lawmaking, and criminal substantive and procedural law, The rule of law (including due process), Comparative law, The law's treatment of minorities and minors, including a chapter on the legal dynamics of race and ethnicity.

Mary K. Stohr, a respected scholar in feminist criminal justice, contributes a chapter on women and the law. Pedagogical features include tables, extensive chapter bibliographies, a glossary of terms, chapter summaries, discussion questions, and lists of cases. Engaging and accessible, Law, Justice, and Society is a lively guide to a vital and ever-changing institution in which we are all potential participants.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The authors of Law, Justice, and Society obviously understand the significance of introducing citizens to the idea that law is a basic social institution and that to study law is to study one's own society, heritage, and values. Any textbook on the subject which can inspire interest in, and understanding of, the study of law from this perspective is on the right track."--Mike Bogner, Chadron State College
