Between Law and Culture: Relocating Legal Studies
Lisa C. Bower, David Theo Goldberg, Michael C. Musheno
U of Minnesota Press, 2001 - Law - 337 pages
What happens to legal thought when key terms-society, culture, power, justice, identity-become unsettled? With the boundaries defining sociolegal scholarship undergoing a profound shift, this book explores the intersections of law, culture, and identity. Sexuality, race, sports, and the politics of policing are among the topics the authors take up as they examine how law both reproduces and challenges fundamental notions of order, discipline, and identity.
