Stuart Scheingold’s Pathbreaking Study of European Integration by Law is a Digitally Remastered Book

In the early days of what would become the European Union, the new entity had a weak and ill-defined legislature and executive. And the European Court of Justice, whose decisions, actions, and even inactions subtly paved the way to a continent’s integration. “Scheingold showed that its efforts, deftly melding law and politics, were a success beyond mere dispute-resolution and development of legal doctrine,” states the new introduction to this classic study. “He was well aware that he was present at the creation of a powerful new institution. Yet he stood virtually alone in seeing what such an institution, using its power this way, could realize in terms of political integration. The resulting book was a masterpiece.”

Stuart Scheingold’s classic The Politics of Law and Order reissued in print and digital with new Foreword by Malcolm Feeley

How crime and public fear of it are socially constructed — not just a set reality to observe. Politicians and others use public anxiety for their purposes, and push a ‘law and order’ platform even as crime rates drop. As the foundational, supported study of the issue, it’s often cited and used in later scholarship on crime and politics, from a legendary scholar in the field–an acclaimed follow-up to his landmark ‘The Politics of Rights.’ Available in ebook and new paperback.
