Chapters provide in-depth coverage of each topic, including its evolution, current state, and directions for future research. <br /><br />Informed by the latest scholarship, <i>The Handbook of Law and Society</i> is an invaluable resource for myriad issues relating to the complex relationship between society and the legal process in the twenty-first century world.
