Quote: Law and Social Relations

The study of law in abstraction from social relations and the social system it purports to regulate will always be idealistic, artificial and inherently biased. The legal system produces and reproduces the essential character of law as a means of rationalizing, normalizing, and legitimizing social control on behalf of those who hold power and the interests they represent.

-- Carol Tator and Frances Henry
