Description - Towards an Economic Sociology of Law by Diamond Ashiagbor

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.
