Much of her work examines the interplay of political, ideological, and economic factors in the implementation of immigration law and in the treatment of white-collar crime, and in both cases it explores what these dynamics can tell us about relations of power and state processes.

Later in this chapter, Calavita calls our attention to the difficulty of defining law and argues that depicting law as a set of written rules makes that definition culturally socidty and inapplicable to non-Western societies.
