Legality and Illegality

Semiotics, Postmodernism and Law


Richard W. Janikowski and Dragon Milovanovic

The approaching millennium invites reflection upon past, present, and future constructions of human community. An important component of community is the mechanism by which communities develop and enforce normative conduct. Of particular interest is how conduct is identified as legal or illegal in modern societies. Focusing on the concepts of legality and illegality, this volume investigates various positions with an underlying theoretical framework that encompasses a semiotic and discourse analysis.
