Common law does not (yet) recognize civil society as a unique legal sphere separate from public and private law in the way that civil society is now recognized as a separate space in some disciplines (Anheier, 2004). Civil society is therefore protected, enabled, regulated, and sometimes allowed preferences by the common law scattered throughout its various public and private divisions.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
