“Treviño’s superb bibliography is organized around themes that place the theoretical literature of the sociology of law in both historical context and comparative perspective. The table of contents reads like a wonderful course outline. . . the author has used excellent judgment in selecting a relatively small number of the best and most enduring articles in each area. This will prevent the book from becoming dated for some time. Anyone teaching a theoretically inclined course in the sociology of law could easily turn the table of contents into a syllabus, then construct a set of readings for the course by selecting articles listed under each topic. This bibliography should be of immense value to scholars, and to students who want to quickly locate major writings on major topics in the field.” – CHOICE
