Laura Nader investigates an issue of vital importance for our time: the role of the law in the struggle for social and economic justice. In this book she gives an overview of the history of legal anthropology and at the same time urges anthropologists, lawyers, and activists to recognize the centrality of law in social change. Nader traces the evolution of the plaintiff's role in the United States in the second half of the twentieth century and argues that the atrophy of the plaintiff's power during this period represents a profound challenge to justice and democracy. Taking into account the vast changes wrought in both anthropology and the law by globalization, Nader speaks to the increasing dominance of large business corporations and the prominence of neoliberal ideology and practice today. In her discussion of these trends, she considers the rise of the alternative dispute resolution movement, which since the 1960s has been part of a major overhaul of the U.S. judicial system. Nader links the increasing popularity of this movement with the erosion of the plaintiff's power and suggests that mediation as an approach to conflict resolution is structured to favor powerful--often corporate --interests
Naked science : anthropological inquiry into boundaries, power, and knowledge by Laura Nader( Book )
15 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 426 libraries worldwide
Naked Science is about contested domains and includes different science cultures: physics, molecular biology, primatology, immunology, ecology, medical environmental, mathematical and navigational domains.

Examining knowledge systems within a planetary frame forces thinking about boundaries that silence or affect knowledge-building. Consideration of ethnoscience and technoscience research within a common framework is overdue fo

Plunder : when the rule of law is illegal by Ugo Mattei( Book )
17 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in English and held by 397 libraries worldwide
"The Rule of Law has long been cherished in the US as the ultimate defender of civil liberty - a Rule of Law which no one can quite define, but everyone supports. In this book, the authors wage a frontal assault on this belief in the sanctity of the Rule of Law, exploring its dark side. They explain its intimate relationship with plunder - the practice of violent extraction by stronger political actors victimizing the weaker ones - in the service of Western cultural and economic domination."--Jacket
