This volume addresses the central tension in debates between ’mainstream’ and ’critical’ tax theorists which reflects a clash of perspectives: is taxation primarily a matter of social science or of social justice? Should tax policy debates be grounded in economics or in critical race, feminist, queer, and other outsider perspectives? With contributions from leading mainstream and critical tax scholars, this volume takes the first step toward bridging the gap between these differing perspectives on tax law and policy.
