Summary

I truly enjoyed The Politics of Law. It's a well-guided tour through contemporary legal academic thought, in general and critical legal studies, in particular. For lawyers--or laypersons--interested in alternative perspectives on the law and legal institutions, this book is an invaluable aid.
--Scott Turow, author of Burden of Proof and Presumed Innocent

The Politics of Law is the leading and most widely read progressive critique of the nature and role of the law in America society. This revised--and over a third entirely new--edition continues the book's concrete focus on the major subjects and fields of law. New essays on emerging fields and the latest trends and cases have been added to update versions of the now classic essays from earlier editions.

A unique assortment of leading scholars and practitioners in law and related disciplines--political science, economics, sociology, criminology, history, and literature--raise basic questions about law, challenging long-held ideas like the separation of law form politics, economics, religion, and culture. The address such issues contextually and with a keen historical perspective as they explain and critique the law in a broad range of areas.

This third edition contains essays on all of the subjects covered in the first year of law school while continuing the book's tradition of accessibility to non-law-trained readers. Insightful and powerful, The Politics of Law makes sense of the debates about judicial restraint and range of legal controversies so central to American public life and culture.

"A brilliant and much needed analysis....there is extremely valuable documentation...an exciting book for those concerned about the need for serious change in society. Highly recommended."

--Choice

"An intellectual reveille for radicals engaged with the law."

--William E. Forobath,Village Voice

"A beacon for progressive scholarship about law...It is a must read."

--Austin Sarat, Professor of Jurisprudence and Political Science, Amherst College

Long considered one of the most important books on the role and operation of the law, THE POLITICS OF LAW offers a provocative, intelligent critique of traditional jurisprudence. This third edition has been extensively updated to respond to the latest changes in judicial trends. THE quintessential critique of our modern judicial system that belongs on the bookshelf of every law student, judge, politician, and interested citizen. Index.

This volume contains "analysis by twenty law teachers and law practitioners, and one sociologist, of the role of law in our society.The law teachers are on faculties at Rutgers, UCLA, Harvard, SUNY Buffalo, New College of California, Wisconsin, Stanford, Georgetown, and Northeastern.{The book consists of} essays, beginning with treatments of legal reasoning, mainstream legal history, and legal education as training for hierarchy, and moving through substantive issues and fields of law, to a final four pieces on alternative progressive approaches to law. . . .The substantive issues and fields examined include racial discrimination, patriarchy and women's subordination, free speech, torts, contracts, criminal law and theories of crime, labor relations, and welfare benefits entitlement."(Choice)
