This multidisciplinary text draws on the work of anthropologists, historians, law professors, political scientists, psychologists, and sociologists to outline how law is an essential social institution that shapes and is shaped by society.

This second edition of Law and Society incorporates the latest research, with dozens of new references, along with many up-to-date examples gleaned from newsworthy events.

Two new pedagogical features in each chapter will help students absorb information: learning objectives that precede each chapter's discussion, and "Thinking about Law and Society" questions that end each chapter and encourage students to think more deeply about specific issues.
