13 essays explore Bruno Latour's legal theory from a variety of disciplinary perspectives This exciting new vision for legal theory combines analytical tools drawn from Latour's actor-network theory developed in Science in Action, Reassembling the Social and The Making of Law with the philosophical anthropology of the Moderns in An Inquiry into Modes of Existence to blaze a new trail in legal epistemology.

Bruno Latour's writings in science and technology studies, anthropology, sociology and philosophy are well-known, but only rarely has his work in law been appreciated as a core element, and still less as a passage point for students and scholars of law. This collection demonstrates the urgency with which both of those omissions must be reconsidered.
