Reflecting a developing trend towards interdisciplinary research in economics and law, this agenda–setting volume makes the case for economic sociology of law  an emerging field that draws on empirical, analytical and normative insights from sociology to investigate relationships between legal and economic phenomena. It locates this novel subject in a wider socio–legal tradition and identifies common ground between Polanyian and Weberian approaches to the law, economy, and society, despite the two theorists  divergent views on the functionality of the capitalist model. The volume provides a platform for researchers critical responses to the social embeddedness of market societies.

Contributors demonstrate the value of applying a combination of methods in their work, from heterogeneous disciplines such as legal history and ethnography. They consider the position in the western and developed nations, as well as in post–colonial polities. The resulting publication is a well–crafted primer on a specialism that, by combining the insights of socio–economic analysis with the formative influences exerted by their specific legal contexts, informs a more nuanced assessment of law, economics and society.

Amanda Perry–Kessaris is Professor of International Economic Law at SOAS, University of London, and has studied law, economics and ethnography. She is currently focusing on the analytical potential of Economic Sociology of Law for the field of law and development and graphic design as a method of communication in that field.

She is secretary to the Socio–Legal Studies Association.

From the Back Cover:

Reflecting a developing trend towards interdisciplinary research in economics and law, this agenda–setting volume makes the case for the economic sociology of law an emerging field that deploys the empirical methodology of sociologists to investigate the relationships between law and the economy. It locates this novel subject in a wider socio–legal tradition and identifies common ground between Polanyian and Weberian approaches to the law, economy, and society, despite the two theorists divergent views on the functionality of the capitalist model. The volume provides a platform for researchers critical responses to the social embeddedness of market societies.

Contributors demonstrate the value of applying a combination of methods in their work, from heterogeneous disciplines such as legal history and ethnography. They consider the position in the western and developed nations, as well as in post–colonial polities characterized all too often by systemic mismatches between their inherited legal systems and the pressures of tackling endemic poverty and sustainable development. The resulting publication is a well–crafted primer on a specialism that, by combining the insights of socio–economic analysis with the formative influences exerted by their specific legal contexts, informs a more nuanced assessment of law, economics and society.
