Personal Relationships of Dependence and Interdependence in Law

Hardback
At their simplest level, human relationships are about ties between people. These ties, however, are anything but simple; rather, they are complex interdependencies whose dynamic reciprocity of obligations and interests is not always represented in our legal thinking. This collection explores the intersection of interdependency and the law, and contemplates some of the key issues at stake in the way the law interprets and addresses human relationships. The book will be of interest to law and society scholars and students, as it presents a different critical framework through which to analyze traditional human relationships.
