Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 184113029X, Hardcover)

How can we characterize law and legal theory in the 21st century? This book argues that we live in an age 'after modernity' and that legal theory must take account of this fact. The book attacks, as outdated, theories of law which rest on widespread notions of law's autonomy and systematic nature and on certain notions of justice, personhood, and legitimacy, and seeks to replace them with a dynamic new account of law and laws appropriate for an era of globalization and postnational communities. However, it also argues that the most pressing issue for law after modernity is that of justice. The approach is fresh, contextual, and interdisciplinary, as well as unusual for a work of legal theory due to being illustrated throughout with works of art and visual representations which serve to enforce the messages of the book. (Series: Legal Theory Today)
