An Introduction to Critical Legal Theory provides an accessible introduction to the study of law and legal theory. It covers all the seminal movements in classical, modern and postmodern legal thought, engaging the reader with the ideas of jurists as diverse as Aristotle, Hobbes and Kant, Marx, Foucault and Dworkin.

At the same time, it impresses the interdisciplinary nature of critical legal thought, introducing the reader to the philosophy, the economics and the politics of law.

This new edition focuses even more intently upon the narrative aspect of critical legal thinking and the re-emergence of a distinctive legal humanism, as well as the various related challenges posed by our 'new' world order.

Subjects:
Jurisprudence
Contents:
Identifying Modernism; The Critique of Modernity; The Politics of Community; The Politics of Positivism; Law and the Political Economy; Politics, Power and Pragmatism; Postmodernism and Deconstruction.
