9780774810326: People and Place: Historical Influences on Legal Culture (Law and Society)

People and Place demonstrates the fascinating ways in which personality and locale interact to shape the law, and how location influences legal cultural history. The essays, by a diverse array of scholars - including legal theorists, historians, and criminologists - examine law through the framework of history. They look at the lives of judges and lawyers, rape victims, prostitutes, religious sect leaders, and common criminals to explore how individuals or small groups have been able to make a difference in how law has been understood, applied, and interpreted.

The essays allow readers to explore law's various meanings across communities and time and to develop a more profound awareness of the complexity of human society. Accessible to academics, students, and general readers interested in the formation of law within a social context, this collection offers a compelling perspective on the subtle relationship of people, place, and the law.

Book Description University of British Columbia Press, Canada, 2003. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. People and Place presents a path-breaking collection of essays demonstrating the fascinating ways in which personalities interact with physical locale in shaping the law. Examining law through the framework of history, this anthology presents a mixture of innovative articles produced by established scholars as well as representatives of the next generation. The collection represents a rich array of interdisciplinary expertise, with authors who are law professors, historians, sociologists and criminologists. Their essays include studies into the lives of judges and lawyers, rape victims, prostitutes, religious sect leaders, and common criminals. The geographic scope touches Canada, the United States and Australia. The essays explore how one individual, or small self-identified groups, were able to make a difference in how law was understood, applied, and interpreted. They also probe the degree to which locale and location influenced legal culture history. The essays offer snapshots of human history, capturing the centrality of law as individuals located themselves in relation to others and to the places and times in which they lived. Accessible to academics, students, and general readers interested in the formation of law within a social context, this collection offers a compelling perspective of this subtle relationship. The close examination of people and place will allow readers to unpack law s various meanings across communities and time, and to move closer to a more profound awareness of the complexity of human society.
