In early modern Europe the law developed as one of the few non-religious orderings of civil life. Its separation from religion was, however, never complete and we see the contest continued today not only in the campaigns of religious fundamentalists of the right, but also in the clains of critical intellectuals to reshape government institutions and the legal apparatus in accordance with moral principle - whether of indivudual autonomy or communitarian self-determination. In Anti-Lawyers, David Saunders traces the story of this unresolved conflict from Hobbes' Leviathan to the American law texts of today, and discusses how we might regard today's moral critics of government and law in the light of the early modern effort to disengage spiritual discipline from secular government and conscience from law. Separate sections look at major figures in English common law in the Early Modern period, French and German absolutism and jurisprudence as it is taught in the American law texts of today.

The relationship between law and religion has traditionally been analysed according to two basic paradigms. One has focused on the relationship between religious communities and the State (the Church/State paradigm), while the other has concentrated on the relationship between the State and the individual (the liberal-individualist or civil liberties paradigm). This book enriches the analysis of law and religion in society by emphasising a third and complementary analytical dimension involving the relationship between religious communities and religious individuals. In particular, the contributors explore the various facets of the multiple tensions that exist in the legal relationships between religious organisations, State and adherents in the period leading up to the third Christian millennium. Against the background of the complex and sometimes contradictory responses of religious organisations and the State to the Human Rights Act, this interdisciplinary collection draws on contributions from leading scholars active in the field of religious rights and the interaction of law and religion based in the UK, USA, Canada, New Zealand and elsewhere, and makes a timely and significant contribution to international debates in a variety of academic disciplines. Contributors explore international concerns over religious liberty, focusing particularly on the boundaries of ethnicity and religious community, the status of the 'established' Churches in the UK, and the proper place for religious organisations under generally applicable legal regimes of non-discrimination. Themes discussed are closely related to wider interests within legal and socio-legal studies involving gender, discrimination, equality, community and the nature and limits of individualism and individual legal rights.

Whether inspired by the Frankfurt School or Antonio Gramsci, the impact of critical theory on the study of international relations has grown considerably since its advent in the early 1980s. This book offers the first intellectual history of critical international theory. Richard Devetak approaches this history by locating its emergence in the rising prestige of theory and the theoretical persona. As theory's prestige rose in the discipline of international relations it opened the way for normative and metatheoretical reconsiderations of the discipline and the world. The book traces the lines of intellectual inheritance through the Frankfurt School to the Enlightenment, German idealism, and historical materialism, to reveal the construction of a particular kind of intellectual persona: the critical international theorist who has mastered reflexive, dialectical forms of social philosophy. . In addition to the extensive treatment of critical theory's reception and development in international relations, the book recovers a rival form of theory that originates outside the usual inheritance of critical international theory in Renaissance humanism and the civil Enlightenment. This historical mode of theorising was intended to combat metaphysical encroachments on politics and international relations and to prioritise the mundane demands of civil government over the self-reflective demands of dialectical social philosophies. By proposing contextualist intellectual history as a form of critical theory, Critical International Theory defends a mode of historical critique that refuses the normative temptations to project present conceptions onto an alien past, and to abstract from the offices of civil government.

This book offers a unique collection of texts framed as a set of conversations on the topics of state, security and subject formation. These conversations are motivated by a question that defines agendas for both politics and political though: how to secure the conditions for a civil and peaceful life together? The contributions to this book explore, at time sceptically, the approach of civil philosophy to that question. This approach suggests an education in civility as well as a public sphere that promotes everyday practices of civility. It also posits the right of the subject to enjoy full and inclusive access to the conditions peaceful co-existence. A secular state that functions as a public authority and uses its sovereignty to establish the rule of law is the primary condition for subjective right.

Although most law schools recognise the value of introducing students to a broader sociological perspective on law, this usually falls short of a full engagement with sociology as an academic discipline. This book introduces a wide range of sociological traditions, and how they can be used in investigating law and legal institutions. The book is organised into six sections, each with an introduction by the editors, on classical sociology of law, structural functionalism and systems theory, critical approaches, interpretive approaches, postmodernism, and pluralism and globalisation, and a conclusion that discusses the relationship between law and sociology. Each of the chapters is written by a specialist who reviews the literature, and discusses how the approach can be used in researching different topics. CONTENTS: Introduction (Reza Banakar and Max Travers) 1. CLASSICAL SOCIOLOGY AND LAW: The Problematization of Law in Classical Social Theory (Alan Hunt); Sociological Jurisprudence (Reza Banakar) 2. STRUCTURAL FUNCTIONALISM AND SYSTEMS THEORY: The Thick Description of Law: An Introduction to Niklas Luhmann's Theory (Klaus A. Ziegert); Jurgen Habermas and the Sociology of Law (Bo Carlsson) 3. CRITICAL APPROACHES: Marxism and the Social Theory of Law (Robert Fine); Sharing the Paradigms? CLS and the Sociology of Law (Jiri Priban), Feminist Legal Theory (Ruth Fletcher); A Race and Gendered Organisational Logic in Law Firms (Jennifer Pierce); Putting Gender and Sexuality on the Agenda (Nico J Beger); The Power of the Legal Field (Mikael R. Madsen and Yves Dezalay) 4. INTERPRETIVE APPROACHES: Symbolic Interactionism and Law (Max Travers); Ethnomethodology and Law (Robert Dingwall) 5. POSTMODERNISM: Foucault and Law (Gary Wickham); Postmodernism and Common Law (Shaun McVeigh) 6. LEGAL PLURALISM (Anne Griffiths); Globalistion and Law (John Flood); Comparative Sociology of Law (David Nelken) CONCLUSIONS: Law and Sociology (Reza Banakar and Max Travers).

Bruce A. Kimball attacks the widely held assumption that the idea of American "professionalism" arose from the proliferation of urban professional positions during the late nineteenth century. This first paperback edition of The "True Professional Ideal" in America argues that the professional ideal can be traced back to the colonial period. This comprehensive intellectual history illuminates the profound relationships between the idea of a "professional" and broader changes in American social, cultural, and political history.
