Review quote

"The authors of Law, Justice, and Society obviously understand the significance of introducing citizens to the idea that law is a basic social institution and that to study law is to study one's own society, heritage, and values. Any textbook on the subject which can inspire interest in, and understanding of, the study of law from this perspective is on the right track."--Mike Bogner, Chadron State College "The authors of Law, Justice, and Society obviously understand the significance of introducing citizens to the idea that law is a basic social institution and that to study law is to study one's own society, heritage, and values.
