In Asking the Law Question, Margaret Davies provides an up-to-date account of traditional and contemporary legal theory. This edition retains the critical and contemporary focus of the first three editions. It has been updated to incorporate discussion of recent works and current trends in legal theory, without losing the emphasis on seeing legal theory in its historical, social and political contexts. This fourth edition includes two new chapters on socio-legal theory and environmental jurisprudence. Legal theory means different things to different scholars. Asking the Law Question reflects the diversity of approaches without attempting to reduce them all into a logical narrative. It is an interdisciplinary work and draws upon a wide range of literary and philosophical sources. Asking the Law Question is an accessible, original and highly readable account of legal philosophy. The text provides succinct explanations of key ideas, as well as in-depth analysis and critique. Suitable for students of jurisprudence, introductory law, feminist legal theory and sociology of law, this book has also proved to be of considerable interest to legal scholars wishing to improve their knowledge of legal theory.

"Lon Fuller's mythical hypothetical, about five cave explorers who become trapped after a landslide and ultimately kill and eat one of their own in order to survive long enough to be rescued, is the speluncean case to which this book's title refers. Fuller gives the reader five fictional judgments from the Supreme Court of a place called Newgarth. He sets the action and judgments far in the future in the year 4300 AD. Each judgment adopts a different perspective on the proper approach to statutory interpretation and on what it is and is not legitimate for judges to do in a democracy...This book is prompted by Fuller's famous article. It gathers together the very best articles which that speluncean case hypothetical, written half a century ago, has inspired." -- from the Introduction, p. ix-x.

Fuller's famous legal case of The Case of the Speluncean Explorers and Peter Suber's The Case of the Speluncean Explorers: Nine New Opinions through the application of literary theories of meaning, interpretation, writing and truth, in particular Jacques Derrida's Dissemination and Friedrich Nietzsche's "On Truth and Lying in a Non-Moral Sense," to analyze the legal and jurisprudential problems in the fictional legal cases and to trace the literary qualities of law that it has consciously renounced and unconsciously forgotten. Introducing what Peter Goodrich calls "interruption of law" (Courts of Love 5) to the reading and analysis of the two legal fictions, this dissertation reveals the way that law upholds its authority and legitimacy through language, presents alternative perspectives of understanding the nature and problems of law, illustrates the relationship of "law as literature," and discusses the utility and significance of legal fictions and stories to the understanding of law and to the illustration of the relationship between law and literature.

The sudden passing of Justice Antonin Scalia shook America. After almost thirty years on the Supreme Court, Scalia had become as integral to the institution as the hallowed room in which he sat. His wisecracking interruptions during oral arguments, his unmatched legal wisdom, his unwavering dedication to the Constitution, and his blistering dissents defined his leadership role on the court and inspired new generations of policymakers and legal minds. Now, as Republicans and Democrats wage war over Scalia’s lamentably empty Supreme Court seat, Kevin Ring, former counsel to the U.S. Senate’s Constitution Subcommittee, has taken a close look at the cases that best illustrate Scalia’s character, philosophy, and legacy. In Scalia’s Court: A Legacy of Landmark Opinions and Dissents, Ring collects Scalia’s most memorable opinions on free speech, separation of powers, race, religious freedom, the rights of the accused, abortion, and more; and intersperses Scalia's own words with an analysis of his legal reasoning and his lasting impact on American jurisprudence. “I don’t worry about my legacy,” Scalia once told an audience at the National Archives. “Just do your job right, and who cares?” Now that "the lion of American law has left the stage,” as the U.S. Attorney General put it, it is for the rest of America to worry about his legacy—and to care.

On 20 September 2001, in an address to a Joint Session of Congress and the American people, President George W Bush declared a 'war on terror'. The concept of the 'war on terror' has proven to be both an attractive and a potent rhetorical device. It has been adopted and elaborated upon by political leaders around the world, particularly in the context of military action in Afghanistan and Iraq. But use of the rhetoric has not been confined to the military context. The 'war on terror' is a domestic one, also, and the phrase has been used to account for broad criminal legislation, sweeping agency powers and potential human rights abuses throughout much of the world. This collection seeks both to draw on and to engage critically with the metaphor of war in the context of terrorism. It brings together a group of experts from Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, France and Germany who write about terrorism from a variety of disciplinary perspectives including international law and international relations, public and constitutional law, criminal law and criminology, legal theory, and psychology and law.
