Books By Author Desmond Manderson
Kangaroo Courts and the Rule of Law, Paperback (July 2012)
This volume addresses the legacy of contemporary critiques of language for the concept of the rule of law. Can the rule of law be re-configured in light of the critical turn of the past several years in legal theory, rather than being steadfastly opposed to it?
Songs without Music, Hardback (September 2000)» View all books by Desmond Manderson
This analysis of the aesthetics of law argues that by treating a text, legal or otherwise, as if it were a sequence of logical propositions, readers miss its formal and symbolic meanings. Using music as a model the author shows that law is not a sterile, rational structure, but a cultural form.
