Law and society scholars challenge the
common belief that law is simply a neutral tool by which society sets standards
and resolves disputes. Decades of research shows how much the nature of
communities, organizations, and the people inhabiting them affect how law
works. Just as much, law shapes beliefs, behaviors, and wider social
structures, but the connections are much more nuanced—and surprising—than many
expect.

Law and Society
Reader II
provides readers an accessible overview to the breadth of recent developments
in this research tradition, bringing to life the developments in this dynamic
field. Following up a first Law and
Society Reader published in 1995, editors Erik W. Larson and Patrick D.
Schmidt have compiled excerpts of 43 illuminating articles published since 1993
in The Law & Society Review, the
flagship journal of the Law and Society Association.

By its organization
and approach, this volume enables readers to join in discussing the key ideas
of law and society research. The selections highlight the core insights and
developments in this research tradition, making these works indispensable for
those exploring the field and ideal for classroom use. Across six
concisely-introduced sections, this volume analyzes inequality, lawyering, the
relation between law and organizations, and the place of law in relation to
other social institutions.

Review:

"The Law & Society Reader II is a cornucopia of knowledge and insight on the biggest questions in the sociolegal tradition. Co-editors Larson and Schmidt have done a fabulous job selecting, organizing, editing, and introducing many of best articles over the last two decades into an invaluable resource for researchers and teachers. Every serious sociolegal scholar needs to have this volume." (Michael McCann,Gordon Hirabayashi Professor for the Advancement of Citizenship, University of Washington)

"The Law & Society Reader II offers academics, students, and the general public a diverse, comprehensive window on some of the most innovative interdisciplinary scholarship on law produced in recent decades. It highlights how the field has become globalized and increasingly aware of the ways in which consciousness infuses legality. The Reader provides an accessible introduction to those new to the field and an indispensable overview for others already familiar with particular facets." (Richard Abel,editor of The Law & Society Reader, 1995)

"An important antidote to the still dominant approach in law schools that teaches legal doctrine via isolated appellate opinions. This book puts law, lawyers, and legal institutions in their social and cultural context. Larson and Schmidt provide an engaging follow-up volume to Rick Abels groundbreaking 1995 reader, effectively excerpting recent articles from the leading socio-legal studies journal, the Law & Society Review." (Laura E. Gomez,University of California, Los Angeles)

"In this volume Larson and Schmidt have creatively captured the spirit and diversity of law and society research published over the last 20+ years." (Herbert M. Kritzer,editor, Law & Society Review, 2003-07)

"Offering a stunning collection of disciplinarily diverse, cutting-edge research . . . this collection describes the way law works as a system of ideas, as a source of social identity, and as a force of social organization, inequality, as well as equality and social change. . . . The anthology will be very useful for students seeking access to this flourishing field of scholarship at both the graduate and undergraduate level, and others who simply want an overview of how law works." (Susan S. Silbey,Leon and Anne Goldberg Professor of Humanities, Sociology and Anthropology, MIT)
