Classic resource in the modern study of legal anthropology, this acclaimed book is now available in an updated, expanded Second Edition. There are many societies that survive in a remarkably orderly fashion without the aid of judges, courts and police. Roberts contends that legal theory has become too closely identified with our own arrangements to be of use in understanding other legal systems.
