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. Introduction to Critical Theory is a comprehensive text for both students and teachers of legal theory, jurisprudence and related subjects.

This book is a comprehensive text for both students and teachers of legal theory,jurisprudence and related subjects. It introduces all the traditional schools of legal theory, from natural law to Positivism to Legal Formalism as well as a number of contemporary and interdisciplinary approaches to legal theory including law and economics, law and society, law and literature, critical legal studies, feminism, race theory and post modernism. In the process of so doing, as well as introducing the reader to established jurists, such as Bentham and Hart, Rawls and Durkin, the text also introduces philosophers such as Plato, Kant and Sartre, economists such as Smith, Keynes and Galbraith, social theorists such as Foucault, Marx and literary theorists such as Derrida and Fish. This book seeks to perfect the increasing ambition of Legal Theory to reach beyond the narrow confines of traditional jurisprudence and to re-establish itself within the wider intellectual world. This book is not just a text about legal theory, it is also a text which introduces the reader to philosophy, economics, politics, history, literature and social theory. It thus provides not just a critical introduction to legal theory, but an introduction to the entire ambition of law as an intellectual discipline.

Much writing in critical legal studies has been devoted to laying bare the contradictions in liberal thought. There have been attacks and counterattacks on the liberal position and on the more conservative law and economics position. Kelman demonstrates that any critique of law and economics is inextricably tied to a broader critique of liberalism.

Die Studie stellt das für die Ideengeschichte und die politische Praxis zentrale Konzept der Souveränität infrage. Denn dieses Konzept wird durch die »Ironie der Geschichte« im Grunde obsolet: Das staatliche Gewaltmonopol, so zeigt Daniel Loick anhand der Entwicklung des modernen Souveränitätsbegriffs, schließt immer auch ein Element nicht zu rechtfertigender Gewalt ein. Das gilt selbst für Formen demokratisch oder deliberativ legitimierter Souveränität. Vor dem Hintergrund der realen Umbrüche innerhalb der internationalen politischen Institutionen fragt er nach Möglichkeiten, das Konzept der Souveränität zu überwinden: Wie lässt sich der gesellschaftliche Zusammenhalt auf andere Art sichern als mit Mitteln der Gewalt?

The leading text in the field, Introduction to Feminist Legal Theory was the first book that served as an introductory survey of feminist jurisprudence. Its historical view of feminist legal theory places issues in social context and thoroughly reviews the evolving paradigms of contemporary feminism from the 1970s through the present. The full range of legal issues affecting women are covered, including gender discrimination, rape, sexual harassment, motherhood, reproductive issues, and much more. Clear, energetic presentation keeps students engaged and involved with succinct overviews, intellectually stimulating material, and jargon-free prose. The Third Edition features up-to-date theories and topics, such as the "autonomy" feminism and "masculinities" theory. Expansion of the current theory-based structure includes the "big three" feminisms described in the previous edition and the "new three" feminisms, which are expanded in the third edition. New applied areas are covered as well, such as transgender legal issues and sex trafficking. While the book remains U.S.-focused, important new material on global and comparative feminism has been added. Throughout the text, students will find discussion about changes in the law since 2003 on issues such as rape, pay equity, sex stereotyping, marriage equality, Title IX, and more.

The chapter on law and economics remains the best short introduction to that difficult, controversial, and influential topic.Students will appreciate the careful organization and clear presentation of complicated issues as well as the emphasis on the relevance of both law and legal theory to contemporary society.

Although most law schools recognise the value of introducing students to a broader sociological perspective on law, this usually falls short of a full engagement with sociology as an academic discipline. This book introduces a wide range of sociological traditions, and how they can be used in investigating law and legal institutions. The book is organised into six sections, each with an introduction by the editors, on classical sociology of law, structural functionalism and systems theory, critical approaches, interpretive approaches, postmodernism, and pluralism and globalisation, and a conclusion that discusses the relationship between law and sociology. Each of the chapters is written by a specialist who reviews the literature, and discusses how the approach can be used in researching different topics. CONTENTS: Introduction (Reza Banakar and Max Travers) 1. CLASSICAL SOCIOLOGY AND LAW: The Problematization of Law in Classical Social Theory (Alan Hunt); Sociological Jurisprudence (Reza Banakar) 2. STRUCTURAL FUNCTIONALISM AND SYSTEMS THEORY: The Thick Description of Law: An Introduction to Niklas Luhmann's Theory (Klaus A. Ziegert); Jurgen Habermas and the Sociology of Law (Bo Carlsson) 3. CRITICAL APPROACHES: Marxism and the Social Theory of Law (Robert Fine); Sharing the Paradigms? CLS and the Sociology of Law (Jiri Priban), Feminist Legal Theory (Ruth Fletcher); A Race and Gendered Organisational Logic in Law Firms (Jennifer Pierce); Putting Gender and Sexuality on the Agenda (Nico J Beger); The Power of the Legal Field (Mikael R. Madsen and Yves Dezalay) 4. INTERPRETIVE APPROACHES: Symbolic Interactionism and Law (Max Travers); Ethnomethodology and Law (Robert Dingwall) 5. POSTMODERNISM: Foucault and Law (Gary Wickham); Postmodernism and Common Law (Shaun McVeigh) 6. LEGAL PLURALISM (Anne Griffiths); Globalistion and Law (John Flood); Comparative Sociology of Law (David Nelken) CONCLUSIONS: Law and Sociology (Reza Banakar and Max Travers).
