- We can order this
"This is a well-rounded book that seems more interesting to students than other books I have used. It provides information on some cutting-edge themes in law and society while staying well grounded in the theories used by law and society practitioners."
-Lydia Brashear Tiede, Associate Professor, University of Houston
Law and Society, Second Edition, offers a contemporary, concise overview of the structure and function of legal institutions, along with a lively discussion of both criminal and civil law and their impact on society. Unlike other books on law and society, Matthew Lippman takes an interdisciplinary approach that highlights the relevance of the law throughout our society. Distinctive coverage of diversity, inequality, civil liberties, and globalism is intertwined through an organized theme in a strong narrative.
The highly anticipated Second Edition of this practical and invigorating text introduces students to both the influence of law on society and the influence of society on the law. Discussions of the pressing issues facing today's society include key topics such as the law and inequality, international human rights, privacy and surveillance, and law and social control.

"It is a gold mine. Reading it could send your mind everywhere and makes you think of other ways of making the classroom more interactive. I suggested it to someone who is also using it for a sociology of law class."-- Boniface Noyongoyo
