About the Book

“The Routledge Handbook of Law and Society” provides a comprehensive and truly global overview of the main approaches and themes within law and society scholarship or sociolegal studies. The book is a one-volume introduction to academic resources and ideas that are relevant for today’s debates on issues from reproductive justice to climate justice, food security, water conflicts, artificial intelligence, and global financial transactions. The book is divided into two sections. The first includes 10 substantive essays on contemporary critical perspectives and approaches. The second and largest section of the book (42 short pieces) presents reflections on topics or areas concerning law, justice, and society that are inherently interdisciplinary and are relevant to current – but also classical – struggles around justice. The authors were carefully chosen to achieve a diverse and non-Eurocentric view of sociolegal studies.
