Full Description


This book is an introduction to the study of law, appropriate for the beginning student in Introduction to Law, Sociology of Law and Criminal Justice. It is interdisciplinary, employing insights from political science, history, philosophy, sociology, and theology. It begins with an examination of law through the ages. Next it looks at the place of law in society, focusing on a spectrum of private law arenas and on the uses and abuses of law-making. Also included is a survey of the major branches of law. The book concludes with an examination of philosophies of law and legal reasoning. The relative briefness of the text lends itself to supplementation by a reader or monograph.
