The Boundaries of Meaning and the Formation of Law: Legal Concepts and Reasoning in the English, Arabic, and Chinese Traditionsby Sharron Gu
Gu's original perspective on legal history challenges established theories of law based on political science, sociology, and philosophy. She argues that language at a specific time and place determines how the law works in each culture. As each language accumulates too many meanings and connotations, the law becomes inflated by rulings, interpretations, and codified cases that overlap and contradict one another.
