"The author has written a compelling text that not only highlights the problem of offensive public speech experienced daily by ordinary citizens but broadens our understanding of this noxious issue."--Susan Fineran, American Journal of Sociology

Professor Nielsen's insights about legal consciousness are innovative. She convincingly demonstrates how different people have different experiences with the law which lead to different expectations about the law and its capacity to solve social problems. This book is a must read for students in sociology, women's studies, legal studies, etc. You will both enjoy it and learn from it -- a rare combination in academic writing.
