Editorial Reviews

?This collection of essays endeavors to analyze not the law but the social components closely surrounding it, which may often determine particular content in the law. The 18 articles perform their analyses in different national and regional societies, seeking to show how the legal systems of each have historically developed, how they operate, their law personnel, and the public's perception of the law in each. The authors are political scientists and historians from the US academic community. A good index common to all the essays is included. Prelaw students should be made aware that these are papers on the sociology and politics of law rather than the law itself. Once students leave law school and go further in the legal profession, they will rarely be allowed by the demands of legal work to interest themselves in the topics of these essays, whose editor is an Affiliated Scholar with the American Bar Foundation, the research arm of the American Bar Association. Recommended for prelaw and social science students; for law and public libraries.?-Choice
