Whereas most modern legal theorists seek to limit their enquiries to a particular sort of law, this book questions the usefulness of such "positivist" dogmas, asserting that the law can and should be seen as multidimensional. It argues that, in a sense, the law is everywhere. In a meeting of postmodern discourse, deconstruction, feminism and legal theory, the author seeks to open new spaces, to create new ways in which we can think about the law by creating links with other practices and disciplines where none previously existed. It sets out to provide a link between conventional legal philosophy and modern movements in legal theory.
