When lawyers decide to integrate sociological studies with the technicalities of law, we can be assured of a book of merit and often of deep interest.
The Journal of Business Law
"A venture in integration of law and the social sciences … both a promise for the future of fruitful interdisciplinary collaboration, and also it itself a valuable contribution to writings on law and society ... A refreshing contribution in the context of present-day Canadian legal research and publication."
"What has been achieved is six articles of quality, with a recurring emphasis on social function, a distinguished-looking volume produced by the University of Toronto Press, and a public declaration of faith in an objective of far-reaching possibilities. The issue is witness to the capacity, energy and gumption of a group of respected colleagues, and to a hope for the future."
The Canadian Bar Review
"iconoclastic, pragmatic approach ... characteristic of an excited and exciting new Canadian venture in published research."
New York University Law Review
