People obey the law if they believe it's legitimate, not because they fear punishment, this is the startling conclusion of this study. This book suggests that lawmakers would do much better to make legal systems worthy of respect than to instil fear. It finds that people obey law primarily because they believe in respecting legitimate authority.
