Written by one of Canada's most prominent socio-legal scholars, Law and Society Redefined is a comprehensive introduction to law and society. Drawing on the foundational contributions of such prominent social theorists as Emile Durkheim, Max Weber, and Michel Foucault, author George Pavlich uses social theory to explore the relationship between law and society. With extensive coverage of many of the most important topics in socio-legal studies, including morality, race, gender, and violence, the text questions the traditional definition of the 'sociology of law' to determine how the field has developed, while also examining the ideas and critiques that might redefine it in the future.

About the Author:


George Pavlich is a professor of law and sociology at the University of Alberta. His research interests include social theory and law, socio-legal studies, governance, restorative justice, and theories of crime. In addition to authoring Law and Society Redefined, he has also co-edited (with Myra Hird) Questioning Sociology: Canadian Perspectives (OUP, 2007).

Review:

"The main strength of [Law and Society Redefined] is the extensiveness of its coverage of theories of law, society, and law and society. It begins with natural law and culminates in Derridean deconstruction. The other main strength is the way it introduces each chapter with a concrete case
study (e.g. apartheid law prohibiting mixed marriages, a case of domestic violence, imposition of the War Measures Act), and then explores what each of the theories canvassed in that chapter can contribute to our understanding of that case. I found this very effective, and could easily see how to
structure a lecture around this structure."

--David Howes, Concordia University
