Synopsis

The separation between public and private spheres has structured

much of our thinking about human organizations. Scholars from nearly

all disciplines use the notion of a public-private divide as a means to

order knowledge and better understand the mechanisms that govern and

shape human behaviour and institutions. In legal and socio-legal

analysis, the distinction informs the differences between state and

non-state actors and between public good and private property.





This rich collection of essays explores how the public-private

divide influences, challenges, and interacts with law and law reform.

Through various case studies, the contributors reflect on this complex

dichotomy's role in structuring the socio-legal environment for the

personal, social, economic, and governance relationships of citizens.

They demonstrate that while the split between the public and the

private is a useful way to understand the world, it is always only an

ideological construct, and as such open to challenge.





Of primary interest to legal thinkers and practitioners, this volume

will also hold sway with sociologists, historians, and political

scientists with an interest in the nature of the public-private

distinction, and its role in law and society.
