New Critical Legal Thinking articulates a newly-emergent stream of politically engaged contemporary critical legal scholarship.
Combining grand theory with a concern for grounded political interventions, the various contributors to this book draw on established theorists, such as Hegel, Lacan, and Foucault, in order to understand contemporary legal matters, such as the war on terror, the recent global economic crisis and the emergence of biopolitics.
The contributions instantiate the fact that a new, timely and cohesive ‘school’ of political legal scholarship has come into being: one which critically interrogates, and intervenes in, the contemporary relationship between law and power.
