About the book:

Full title: Anthropology of Law: A Comparative Theory. This book represents the first major attempt at a theoretical synthesis of the field of legal anthropology. Topical coverage includes: defining the form of law and its attributes most useful for cross-cultural research; locating law in the subgroups of society; critically evaluating attempts to comprehend the development and evolution of legal systems; extending views of societal internalization and the role of the individual in charge of laws; presenting alternative means of conceptualizing justice for cross-cultural investigation; and demonstrating the applicability of a cross-cultural method for the comparison of substantive law.
