At the Boundaries of Law is a timely and pathbreaking work that provides a series of non-technical, interdisciplinary explorations into the nature and effects of legal regulation on women's lives. The essays are original and by no means conventional in their analysis. They provide a balance to earlier feminist work which stressed formal equality and disallowed discussion of 'differences'. In questioning the concepts of legal thought, these feminists provide an impetus for some long overdue rethinking not only among lawyers, but among social observers, critics, and scholars as well. The book offers a refreshing and wholesome challenge to much of the mainstream literature, thought and methodology in law and the social sciences.
