The Rule of Law: Transformation

The Rule of Law: Transformation

(p.163) Chapter Eight The Rule of Law: Transformation
Philip Selznick
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines Selznick's views as reflected in Law and Society in Transition: Toward Responsive Law (1978), which he coauthored with colleague and former student, Philippe Nonet. The book sought to contribute to “a reintegration of legal, political, and social theory.” Central to this large enterprise is “to recast jurisprudential issues in a social-science perspective.” The book is also an attempt to respond to challenges to the legitimacy of law that had emerged in America, and elsewhere in the developed world, most dramatically in the 1960s.

Keywords:   Philip Selznick, Law and Society in Transition, Philippe Nonet, social science
