Abstract

Based in part on James Willard Hurst's idea that markets create a social aggregate of behavior that shapes law, Lawrence M. Friedman made one of the earliest arguments for the use of popular culture in the study of law. This paper considers Friedman's social theory and places it into a broader context of scholarship on the same topic.
