Omtale: Exploring the 'Socio' of Socio-Legal Studies
In this insightful and engaging collection, a broad range of scholars analyses a core issue for socio-legal studies - what is understood by the 'socio' of the socio-legal? Ranging from critical theoretical to conceptual and methodological perspectives, the essays provide an important stock-take and examination of the socio-legal field, offering key insights for legal studies generally and other fields more broadly where the 'socio' is found. The collection draws from a diversity of fields, including legal theory, cultural studies and social policy. Moving from a broad analysis of the concept of the 'socio', the book proceeds through historical and theoretical analyses, addresses the role of place and practice in the constitution of the social, before finally examining, through a series of case studies, specific themes such as gender, sexuality and race. Including both European and American authors, and representing vastly different research traditions, the collection's wide range of themes and topics provides a distinctive and important contribution to socio-legal studies
