Law and society is a rapidly growing field that turns the conventional view of law as mythical abstraction on its head.

Kitty Calavita brilliantly brings to life the ways in which law is found not only in statutes and courtrooms but in our institutions and interactions, while inviting readers into conversations that introduce the field’s dominant themes and most lively disagreements. Deftly interweaving scholarship with familiar examples, Calavita shows how scholars in the discipline are collectively engaged in a subversive exposé of law’s public mythology. While surveying prominent issues and distinctive approaches to both law as it is written and actual legal practices, as well as the law’s potential as a tool for social change, this volume provides a view of law that is more real but just as compelling as its mythic counterpart. With this second edition of Invitation to Law and Society, Calavita brings up to date what is arguably the leading introduction to this exciting, evolving field of inquiry and adds a new chapter on the growing law and cultural studies movement.

    Has more in common with self-help-books than actual informative books. Calavita constantly uses personal and historical anecdotes to try to shock and grab the reader's attention and to subconsciously try to influence the reader's opinion on certain societal issues, but she doesn't actually offer substantial evidence to support her argument, nor does she shine light on or refute possible counter arguments.

    Some chapters were better than others. I feel like she used a lot of examples which sometimes convoluted her points.
