Books that are innovative as well as scholarly, and that inspire and provoke as well as inform. Books with a critical edge. And, particularly, books that draw upon the insights and frameworks of other disciplines: sociology, politics or philosophy; but also other social science and humanities disciplines, such as cultural studies, geography, economics, social policy, history and literature.

Routledge Research in Law Books
