Drawing upon philosophical pragmatism, Tamanaha constructs the foundations for a realistic approach to the social scientific study of law. He analyses the major schools of socio-legal theory, and articulates a `social theory of law' which is illustrated using concrete examples from judicial decision making. In a clear and concise fashion he combines a grounding in social science with legal theory and an exploration of the actual practice of law.
