Beginning with the basic question of what the components and functions of law are, this volume addresses key issues in the study of sociology and law. Articles debate different sociological theories of law, present contemporary critical legal theories, and question the notion of law as an institutionalized authority. In addition to dealing with the overall issues surrounding sociological legal theory, this volume includes and analysis of how Marxism, socialism, and capitalism relate to the law.
