Beyond Comparison by Timothy Macklem
Book DescriptionIn Beyond Comparison: Sex and Discrimination Timothy Macklem addresses foundational issues in the long-running debate in legal, political and social theory about the nature of gender discrimination. He takes the highly original and controversial view that the heart of discrimination lies not in the unfavorable comparisons with the treatment and opportunities that men enjoy but rather in a denial of resources and opportunities that women need to lead successful and meaningful lives as women. Therefore, to understand what women need we must first understand what it is to be a woman. By displaying an impressive command of the feminist literature as well as intellectual rigor, this work promises to be a milestone in the debate about gender equality and will interest students and professionals in the areas of legal theory and gender studies.

Books By Author Timothy Macklem
Law and Life in Common, Hardback (March 2015)
How can law help build community? Don't people typically have good reason to pursue their own courses at the cost of life in common? This book goes beyond the familiar debates in jurisprudence, exploring the ways in which the rational appeal of law requires the support of other means of persuasion, most obviously enforcement, but also beguilement.
Independence of Mind, Paperback (February 2008)
Fundamental freedoms of conscience, speech, privacy and religion are an essential part of the current fabric of Western political thought. Independence of Mind undertakes a comprehensive philosophical examination of the moral bases of these freedoms, and offers a penetrating analysis of the true significance of their entrenchment in law.
