About

Overview

The three-volume one-million-word Encyclopedia of Law and Society: American and Global Perspectives is planned as the largest comprehensive and international treatment of the law and society field ever undertaken. Its Advisory Board of 62 members, from 20 countries and six continents, represent interdisciplinary perspectives on law from sociology, criminology, cultural anthropology, political science, social psychology, and economics. More than 700 entries will be biographical, historical, comparative, topical, thematic, and methodological, varying from 500 to 5,000 words. By globalizing the encyclopedia's coverage, American law and society will be better understood within its historical and comparative context. Conversely, the rich diversity of European, Latin American, Asian, African, and Australasian developments for the first time can be presented in one place. In this way the truly holistic, interdisciplinary virtues of law and society can be revealed.

Reviews

"The regional aspects of law are illuminated in numerous biographies and regional studies. Theory and methodology are explained in articles on organizations and approaches to research. Numerous cross references, suggestions for additional reading and a detailed index guide further research. The result is a groundbreaking guide that will serve both public and academic libraries." --Lawrence Looks at Books, October 2007
