Rapoport on Golding's Lord of the Flies

Professor Nancy Rapoport (University of Houston Law Center) has posted on SSRN her book chapter, Lord of the Flies (1963): The Development of Rules Within an Adolescent Culture. From the abstract:
This essay, included in the book SCREENING JUSTICE--THE CINEMA OF LAW: Significant Films of Law, Order and Social Justice (Rennard Strickland, Teree E. Foster & Tauyna Lovell Banks, eds., William S. Hein & Co. 2006), discusses the development of the law in Goldman's "Lord of the Flies" and raises the question of whether an island populated by a mix of boys and girls - or an island populated by only girls - would have developed a different law.
