Hailed as one of the most important works in the history of sociology, and a precursor to the revolutionary theoretical approach of pure sociology, this short and lucid book is as relevant today as when it was first published in 1976. To honour this seminal book, Emerald is pleased to announce that it will publish a special edition of "The Behavior of Law", including a number of additional features: a new foreword from Mark Cooney; an interview with the author, entitled "How Law Behaves"; reflections from a number of prominent sociologists on "The Behavior of Law"'s impact over the last thirty years. It features an author profile written by Randall Collins.

"Brilliant...A major breakthrough...A crashing classic."
"Occasionally--perhaps once in a decade--there comes a sociological book that makes a difference because it reports that a new set of important facts has been creatively assembled...These volumes become classics. The Behavior of Law is one of them."
--Donald R. Cressey in SOCIOLOGY AND SOCIAL RESEARCH
"This book has already been hailed as the most important contribution ever made to the sociology of law. It is that and more."
--Lawrence W. Sherman in CONTEMPORARY SOCIOLOGY
"The Behavior of Law...stakes out a claim to the status of a classic formulation. It brilliantly integrates a vast range of ideas and empirical materials in the sociology and anthropology of law, boldly asserting general theorems which are related to rich and illuminating detail."
--Dietrich Rueschemeyer in AMERICAN JOURNAL OF SOCIOLOGY
"Donald Black provides a long-awaited synthesis of sociolegal scholarship, presenting a general model...and laying a conceptual foundation for future comparative research on law in history, sociology, and ethnography."
--Klaus-Friedrich Koch in SCIENCE
"Black is one of the cleanest, most exact and elegant practitioners of the art of Durkheim--in the same class as Durkheim himself."
--Arthur L. Stinchcombe in LAW AND SOCIETY REVIEW
