Product Overview

How far are lawyers agents of the state or of capital? Are there ways in which they can work constructively or transformatively for the working class or the underprivileged? What insights, if any, can a postmodernist analysis of legal discourse bring to these questions? Lawyers in a Postmodern World explores how lawyers actively create the forms of power which they and others deploy. It examines how lawyers work within and for powerful institutions, and provides models for using their discursive skills with and for the powerless. This is important reading for scholars and students in social theory, law, criminology, social policy and political science.
