  • Law and Psychoanalysisby Maria Aristodemou

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 125.00

    'I swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth' we say in a court of law. 'In a court of law, the truth is precisely what we will not say', says Lacan. ?If God is dead, everything is permitted?, writes Dostoyevsky. ?If God is dead, everything is prohibited?, responds Lacan. ?I think, therefore I am?, reasons Descartes. ?I am... more...

  • The Passions of Lawby Susan Bandes

    NYU Press 2000; US$ 89.00

    The Passions of Law is the first anthology to treat the role that emotions play, don't play, and ought to play in the practice and conception of law and justice. Lying at the intersection of law, psychology, and philosophy, this emergent field of law scholarship raises some of the most profound and interesting questions at the heart of jurisprudence.... more...

  • Psychology and Lawby David Canter; Rita ?ukauskiene

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2008; US$ 59.95

    Including international contributions from lawyers, psychologists, sociologists and criminologists, this important book captures contemporary attempts to build bridges between the two very different disciplines of law and psychology and to establish the true nature of the interaction between the two at an international level. more...

    Wiley 2003; US$ 274.00

    The second edition of this popular international handbook highlights the developing relationship between psychology and the law.

  • Crime, Desire and Law's Unconsciousby David Gurnham

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 125.00

    Sexual desire, and the possible dangers associated with its more extreme manifestations, provokes strong, albeit often contradictory reactions. Such reactions are a well-known stimulant of creative, juridical and scholarly activity, and the texts of law, literature and academic criticism respond to it in ways that suggest both of revulsion and fascination.... more...

  • Law, Orientalism and Postcolonialismby Piyel Haldar

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 57.95

    Focusing on the ?problem? of pleasure Law, Orientalism and Postcolonialism  uncovers the organizing principles by which the legal subject was colonized. That occidental law was complicit in colonial expansion is obvious. What remains to be addressed, however, is the manner in which law and legal discourse sought to colonize individual subjects as... more...

  • Law's Relationsby Jennifer Nedelsky

    Oxford University Press, USA 2012; US$ 64.99

    Autonomy is one of the core concepts of legal and political thought, yet also one of the least understood. The prevailing theory of liberal individualism characterizes autonomy as independence, yet from a social perspective, this conception is glaringly inadequate. In this brilliantly innovative work, Jennifer Nedelsky claims that we must rethink our... more...

  • Tax Rate Cuts and Tax Compliance--The Laffer Curve Revisitedby Tamás K. Papp; Elöd Takáts

    International Monetary Fund 2008; US$ 9.00

    The paper shows how tax rate cuts can increase revenues by improving tax compliance. The intuition is that tax evasion has externalities: tax evaders protect each other, because they tie down limited enforcement capacity. Thus, relatively small tax rate cuts, which decrease incentives to evade taxes, can lead to increased revenues through spillovers... more...

  • The Implicit Relation of Psychology and Lawby Fiona Raitt; Suzanne Zeedyk

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 95.00

    From a feminist perspective, the authors critically review the current use of psychology in law and identify a powerful collusion between the two fields which works actively against the interests of women. They provide support for their argument in such areas as child abuse, domestic violence, rape and abortion. This groundbreaking international text... more...
