Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of Society and Law: An Exploration across Disciplines, edited by Ayan Hazra.

Law is a discipline deeply affected by development and adjustment. Standards are neither made nor connected in a vacuum, and are re-adjusted and utilized for a number of specific reasons. Law and society are deeply connected with each other: society resembles the wilderness without the application of law, while law is characterised by the society in which it is implemented.

The relationship between authoritative legal documents and social science has been increasingly investigated within recent years, with collaboration between researchers from the humanities, sociology, and legal disciplines, destabilizing and re-conceptualizing ways of discussing legal issues. This ever-expanding corpus of work has explored an assortment of issues, from ideas of uniformity and secularism to histories of provincial law, and from women’s activist engagements with the law to the relationship between law and the media. This book investigates a range of hypothetical issues concerning the relationship between law and society and how it plays out, specifically in fields of legitimacy and social strategy at both residential and universal levels. This will allow the reader to comprehend the hidden standards and ideas in socio-legal reviews. The central questions here are: What effect does law have on our lives? To what extent does law either control what we do or permit us to accomplish what we need? Is law indistinguishable from equity?
