9780674046924: The Expressive Powers of Law: Theories and Limits

When asked why people obey the law, legal scholars usually give two answers. Law deters illicit activities by specifying sanctions, and it possesses legitimate authority in the eyes of society. Richard McAdams shifts the prism on this familiar question to offer another compelling explanation of how the law creates compliance: through its expressive power to coordinate our behavior and inform our beliefs.

People seek order, and they sometimes obtain a mutually shared benefit when each expects the other to behave in accordance with law. Traffic regulations, for example, coordinate behavior by expressing an orderly means of driving. A traffic sign that tells one driver to yield to another creates expectations in the minds of both drivers and so allows each to avoid collision. McAdams generalizes from traffic to constitutional and international law and many other domains. In addition to its coordinating function, law expresses information. Legislation reveals something important about the risks of the behavior being regulated, and social attitudes toward it. Anti-smoking laws, for example, signal both the lawmakers’ recognition of the health risks associated with smoking and the public’s general disapproval. This information causes individuals to update their beliefs and alter their behavior.

McAdams shows how an expressive theory explains the law’s sometimes puzzling efficacy, as when tribunals are able to resolve disputes even though they lack coercive power or legitimacy. The Expressive Powers of Law contributes to our understanding of the mechanisms by which law―simply by what it says rather than what it sanctions―generates compliance.

About the Author:

Richard H. McAdams is Bernard D. Meltzer Professor of Law at the University of Chicago Law School.

Review:

"One of the most appealing features of this book is that it is clear that the author is genuinely curious and excited about the question he is exploring; and he wants to share that with the reader.  Put that together with the elegant and lucid prose, and the end product is a fun read. For me though, the best thing about the book was that it kept me thinking about its ideas many days after I had turned the last page." Mitu Gulati, Duke Law School, The New Rambler

"This excellent book is well worth a read." Eric Posner, University of Chicago, EricPosner.com

Descripción Harvard University Press, 2015. Estado de conservación: New. Why do people obey the law? Law deters crime by specifying sanctions, and because people internalize its authority. But Richard McAdams says law also generates compliance through its expressive power to coordinate behavior (traffic laws) and inform beliefs (smoking bans)--that is, simply by what it says rather than what it sanctions.
