Description


Does the law act for or against the people ? Who are the people ? This collection of essays by philosophers, historians, legal scholars, and others examines these questions in historical perspective; in law and literature; in contemporary, advanced, and developing societies; and with respect to gender and economics. What the law does and ought to represent is viewed semiotically as a problem admitting of no definitive answer.
