An Introduction to Law and Social Theory
Edited by: Reza Banakar, Max Travers    

Although most law schools recognise the value of introducing students to a broader sociological perspective on law,this usually falls short of a full engagement with sociology as an academic discipline. This book introduces a wide range of sociological traditions, and how they can be used in investigating law and legal institutions.

The book is organised into six sections, each with an introduction by the editors, on classical sociology of law, structural functionalism and systems theory, critical approaches, interpretive approaches, postmodernism, and pluralism and globalisation, and a conclusion that discusses the relationship between law and sociology. Each of the chapters is written by a specialist who reviews the literature, and discusses how the approach can be used in researching different topics.


Reza Banakar is a Reader in Law at the University of Westminster.
Max Travers teaches at the University of Tasmania.
