Race, Law, Resistance is an original and important contribution to current theoretical debates on race and law.br The central claim is that racial oppression has profoundly influenced the development of legal doctrine and that the production subjugated figures like the slave and the refugee has been fundamental to the development of legal categories such as contract and tort. Of interests to academics and students of Critical Race Theory and Postcolonialism, the book takes the form of five thoughtful and provocative essays that draw on a range of disciplinary perspectives to provoke challenge conventional understandings of international/European and domestic legal doctrine.br Drawing on examples from the UK and US legal systems in particular, this book employs a wide range of theoretical and disciplinary perspectives to explore resistance to racial dominance in modernity. In particular, it highlights the main tenets and distinctive scholarly forms of critical theories on race and law.
