  • 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.

    'I swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth' we say in a court of law.

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 109.95

  • 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.

In this brilliantly innovative work, Jennifer Nedelsky claims that we must rethink our... more...
