"In the finest sociological tradition, The Place of Law deftly challenges the popular assumption that the concepts and doctrines of law in regulating certain human activities are determined by atomistic individuals. Marshalling a wide array of empirical evidence, Larry D. Barnett brilliantly makes the case for context preceding content. Barnett, who is a lawyer and a sociologist, offers a framework for the study of law that convincingly demonstrates that only when we consider law's social context can we then explain and predict its content. The Place of Law should be required reading in all law schools." -A. Javier Treviño, Wheaton College.
