Radical Philosophy of Law by David S. Caudill
Book DescriptionThis book represents a cross section of contemporary critiques of the legal establishment - its theoretical foundations and its institutions and processes. Recognising that proposals for alternatives to mainstream legal theory and practice do not belong to any single discipline, Caudill and Gold select essays by scholars in philosophy, sociology, criminology, and political theory, in addition to law professors and practitioners. Recognising, as well, that no single perspective dominates radical legal theory, the essays exemplify the approaches associated with Marxian and neo-Marxian analyses, American Critical Legal Studies and Critical Race Theory, radical feminism, semiotics, liberal theology, and psychoanalytic theory and criticism.

Stories About Science in Law, Hardback (May 2011)
Presenting examples of how literary accounts can provide a supplement to our understanding of science in law, this book challenges the view that law and science are completely different. It focuses on stories which explore the relationship between law and science, especially cultural images of science that prevail in legal contexts.
Lacan and the Subject of Law, Paperback (April 1997)
Offers an introduction to Lacanian psychoanalytic theory and a demonstration of the relevance of Jacques Lacan's work for the critique of legal processes and instructions. This book highlights the inconsistencies among Lacan's critics - that Lacan is too Freudian, or not Freudian enough; he's post-modern, or he's traditional.
