The anthropology of law

Going beyond the functional and instrumental aspects of law that underlie traditional ethnographic studies of order and conflict resolution, this book considers contemporary debates on human rights and new forms of property, but also delves into the rich corpus of texts and codes studied by legal historians, classicists, and orientalist scholars.
