"Radical Philosophy of Law" 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.
David S. Caudill teaches law at Washington and Lee University. Steven J. Gold has taught at Carlton College, Iowa State University, and Southern Connecticut University.
