American cultural pluralism and law

Jill Norgren and Serena Nanda

This updated edition brings an examination of American cultural pluralism and the law up to date through the Clinton administration. While maintaining an emphasis on the concept of cultural diversity as it relates to the law in the United States, new and updated chapters reflect recent relevant court cases bearing on culture, race, gender and class, with particular attention paid to local and state court opinions. Drawing on court materials, statutes and codes, and legal ethnographies, the text analyses the ongoing negotiations and accommodations via the mechanism of law between culturally different groups and the larger society. It is suitable as a text for courses in American government, society and the law, cultural studies and civil rights. Jill Norgren is the author of "Partial Justice". Serena Nanda is the author of "Neither Man nor Woman".
