Making Law: The State, the Law, and Structural Contradictions (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


This book constructs a general theory of lawmaking that focuses on the question of why laws are enacted. Legal scholars, sociologists, political scientists, and anthropologists join in an attempt to develop and refine a structural theory of law. The theory proposed disavows the claims of the ruling class and consensus and pluralist theories, and suggests instead that an adequate theory of lawmaking must begin with an understanding of the structural constraints that exist in the political, economic, and social relations of the time. The contributors are Kitty Calavita, Thomas C. Castellano, William J. Chambliss, Ryken Grattet, Mark S. Hamm. James H. McDonald, Edmund F. McGarrell, Raymond J. Michalowski, Henry N. Pontell, Frederic I. Solop, Ephraim Tabory, J. Allen Whitt, Nancy A. Wonders, and Marjorie S. Zatz.
