9780198264903: Law's Community: Legal Theory in Sociological Perspective (Oxford Socio-Legal Studies)

This important collection of essays by a leading theorist attempts to re-locate the relationship between the traditional concerns of legal theory and the sociology of law by establishing a consistent approach to the analysis of law in contemporary Western societies. This new book is based upon previously published essays which have been extensively revised and updated, and includes new introductory and concluding chapters. It offers an important contribution to the study of law and social theory.

About the Author:

Roger Cotterrell is at Queen Mary and Westfield College, University of London.

Review:


"A fine collection of essays....Roger Cotterrell has, more than any other writer, carved out space within the dusty conservatism of the English law school curriculum for the sociology of law."--The Modern Law Review


"...Cottrell's book is an enjoyable, stimulating read... A short essay cannot do justice to its nuances of argument."--American Journal of Sociology

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1997. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Law s Community offers a distinctive analysis of law, identifying political and moral problems that are fundamental to contemporary legal theory. It portrays contemporary law as institutionalized doctrine, emphasizing ways in which legal modes of thought influence wider currents of understanding and belief in contemporary Western societies. Exploring relationships between law and sociology as contrasting and competing fields of knowledge, Law s Community develops ideas from social theory to identify key problems for legal development; in particular, those of restoring moral authority to law and of elaborating a concept of community that can guide legal regulation. The analysis leads to radical conclusions: among them, that law s functions need reconsideration at the most general level, that a unitary state legal system as portrayed in traditional kinds of legal theory may no longer be adequate in complex contemporary societies, and that law should be reconceptualized as a diverse but co-ordinated plurality of systems, sites, and forms of regulation.
