In Asking the Law Question, Margaret Davies provides an up to date account of traditional and contemporary legal theory. This edition retains the critical and contemporary focus of the first two editions. It has been updated to incorporate discussion of recent works and current trends in legal theory, without losing the emphasis on seeing legal theory in the context of its historical, social and political contexts. New material has been added on the notion of legal boundaries, the idea of ‘evolution’ in law, the theory of science, the relationship between legal theory and the sociology of law, sexuality/queer theory, and the intersection between culture, religion and gender. All chapters have been extensively updated, revised and re-edited

Legal theory means different things to different scholars. Asking the Law Question reflects the diversity of approaches without attempting to reduce them all into a logical narrative. It is an interdisciplinary work and draws upon a wide range of literary and philosophical sources.

Asking the Law Question is an accessible, original and highly readable account of legal philosophy. The text provides succinct explanations of key ideas, as well in-depth analysis and critique. Suitable for students of jurisprudence, introductory law, feminist legal theory, and sociology of law, this book has also proved to be of considerable interest to legal scholars wishing to improve their knowledge of legal theory.
