Ideas:
“  I am exploring why, when, and where particular proscriptions and prescriptions of law on key social activities arise, persist, and change. My thesis is that, in a modern nation, society-level forces rather than individuals determine whether law bans or permits society-significant social activities. I am thus undertaking original studies that apply logistic regression to data on U.S. states for the purpose of unearthing macrosociological agents responsible for differences in state law on socially salient issues.  ”
