Synopsis

Race, Law, Resistance by Patricia (Birkbeck College, University of London, UK) Tuitt

Race, Law, Resistance is an original and important contribution to current theoretical debates on race and law. The central claims are that racial oppression has profoundly influenced the development of legal doctrine and that the production of subjugated figures like the slave and the refugee has been fundamental to the development of legal categories such as contract and tort. Drawing on examples from the UK and US legal systems in particular, this book employs a wide range of theoretical and disciplinary perspectives to explore resistance to racial dominance in modernity. In particular, it highlights the main tenets and distinctive scholarly forms of critical theories on race and law. Race, Law, Resistance will be of interest to academics and students following courses on critical race theory, law and postcolonialism, discrimination law, legal theory, legal systems, the law of obligations, comparative legal cultures, law and literature, and human rights.

Reviews

In providing new perspectives on the relevance of race, this book makes a valuable contribution to literature on race and law... this is a book with original and provocative insights that reveal a constant dynamic between race and law. - Mark Bell in Feminist Legal Studies, issue 14 (2006)
