This original and thought-provoking volume considers how cultural assumptions are built into legal decision-making, drawing on a series of case studies to demonstrate the range of ways courts express their understanding of human nature, social relationships and the sense of orderliness that cultural schemes purport to offer. Unpacking issues such as native heritage, male circumcision and natural law, Rosen provides fresh insight into socio-legal studies, drawing on his extensive experience as both an anthropologist and a law professional to provide a unique perspective on the important issue of law and cultural practice.
