Origins, Interactions, and Change
- John R. Sutton - University of California, Santa Barbara, USA
The book: contrasts normative and sociological perspectives on law; presents a primer on the logic of research and inference as applied to law related issues; examines theories of legal change; and discusses law in action with specific reference to civil rights legislation.
"I think this book is going to be major contribution to the sociology of law. The balance between theory and substance, always a problem in this field, is very nice."
"I look forward to using this book in my undergraduate sociology of law course."
