Provocative and unorthodox, this is the first book in twenty years to address Foucault’s position on law. Engaging with neglected texts, as well as considering Foucault’s relationship to other continental thinkers, the authors examine the claim that the law was expelled from Foucault’s analysis of modernity.

Advancing a radically alternative reading of Foucault’s work on law, whilst re-thinking current socio-political configurations, this book focuses on the following texts by Foucault:

  • Truth and Juridical Forms
  • Maurice Blanchot: The Thought from Outside
  • A Preface to Transgression.
This is a valuable resource for undergraduates and postgraduates studying jurisprudence and social-legal theory.

Introduction: Beginnings
Chapter 1: Orientations: Foucault and Law
Chapter 2: Foucault's Other Law
Chapter 3: Futures of Law
