Country of Publication: UK
Format: Hardback
Price: £95.00

The proposed volume is the first to address the relationship between law and neoliberalism. Assembling work from established and emerging legal scholars, political theorists, philosophers, historians and sociologists from around the world, including the Americas, Australia, Europe and the United Kingdom, it addresses the conceptual, legal, and political relationships between liberal legality and neoliberal economics.

More specifically, the book analyses the role that legality plays in the dominant economic force of our time: offering both a legal corrective to economic and political economic scholarship that has paid insufficient attention to legal ideas and a political economic corrective to legal scholarship which has only recently (but not yet systematically or conceptually) turned to theorizing neoliberalism. It will be of enormous interest to those working at the intersection of law and politics in our neoliberal age.
