In Jurisprudence as Ideology, Valerie Kerruish asks how it is that people who are put down, let down and kept down by law can be thought to have a general political obligation to obey it. She engages with contemporary issues in socialist, feminist and critical legal theory, and links these issues to debates in jurisprudence and the philosophy and sociology of law.

The Mythology of Modern Law is a radical reappraisal of the role of myth in modern society. Peter Fitzpatrick uses the example of law, as an integral category of modern social thought, to challenge the claims of modernity which deny the relevance of myth to modern society.

This book is about 'Kantianism' in both a narrow and a broad sense. In the former, it is about the tracing of the development of the retributive philosophy of punishment into and beyond its classical phase in the work of a number of philosophers, one of the most prominent of whom is Kant. In the latter, it is an exploration of the many instantiations of the 'Kantian' ideas of individual guilt, responsibility and justice within the substantive criminal law . On their face, such discussions may owe more or less explicitly to Kant, but, in their basic intellectual structure, they share a recognisably common commitment to certain ideas emerging from the liberal Enlightenment and embodied within a theory of criminal justice and punishment which is in this broader sense 'Kantian'. The work has its roots in the emergence in the 1970s and early 1980s in the United States and Britain of the 'justice model' of penal reform, a development that was as interesting in terms of the sociology of philosophical knowledge as it was in its own right. Only a few years earlier, I had been taught in undergraduate criminology (which appeared at the time to be the only discipline to have anything interesting to say about crime and punishment) that 'classical criminology' (that is, Beccaria and the other Enlightenment reformers, who had been colonised as a 'school' within criminology) had died a major death in the 19th century, from which there was no hope of resuscitation.

Limited Responsibilities explores the interaction between the criminal justice system and the wider concerns of political and social institutions, including the welfare state, social work and forensic psychiatry. Using the key concept of `responsibility', Tamar Pitch critiques the classical theories of Anglo-American and Italian criminologies, examining the allocation of responsibilities to individuals and society. Looking at the shifting political relationship between criminal justice and the welfare system, Pitch considers the problems which arise in our understandings of responsibility, particularly in relation to the young and the mentally disabled. She also documents the centrality of responsiblity as an issue in women's struggles for legislation on sexual violence, as a paradigm of the politicisation of notions of crime, victimization and criminal responsibility. Limited Responsiblities will be of interest to lecturers, students and professionals in criminology, social policy and women's studies.

This book is an antecedent study on the task facing China's legal science, more strictly speaking — China's legal philosophy, in post-Cold War world structure. In broader terms, this is an academic study of China's own “identity” and future in the world structure. The author believes that from 1978 to 2004, in spite of its great achievements, China's legal science has at the same time had some of its grave problems being exposed. A fundamental problem is its failure to provide a “Chinese legal ideal picture” as the standard of and direction for evaluating, assessing and guiding China's law/legal development. This is an age of law without China's own ideal picture(s). However, why has China failed to have its own legal ideal picture(s)? Apparently this question in and of itself implies a question, both more directly and fundamentally, of China's legal science, namely why China's legal science has failed to provide China's own legal picture(s)? Or, as an internal critical approach may suggest (namely to critique China's legal science from the perspective of its promised objectives), where is China's legal science heading? Based on this, this book attempts to expound a standard to evaluate China's legal science through a theoretical discussion of this issue, and to further explore the possible direction for China's legal science beyond this age. Contents:IntroductionChina's Legal Science and the “Paradigm of Modernization” A Critique and Reflection on the “Paradigm of Modernization” The Absence of “China” in Chinese Legal Scholarship: A Case Study of the Legal Research on “Consumers' Rights” Further Critical Examination of China's Legal Science (1): A Critique of Liang Zhiping's “Legal Culturalism” Further Examination of China's Legal Science (Part 2): A Critique of Su Li's “Indigenous Resourcism” Some Tentative Concluding Remarks Readership: Researchers, professionals, undergraduate and graduate students interested in China's legal science and legal philosophy studies. Keywords:Chinese Jurisprudence;Positivism;Legalism;Rights as the Foundation;Indigenous ResourcesKey Features:This book is written by a prominent scholar in China's social sciences in general and jurisprudence in particular. The Chinese version of this book is one of the most important, and also best-selling, academic books on China's legal science since 1949. It surveys, in general, the development of China's jurisprudence in the past three decades, with a critical eye on how it has colluded with China's ticket to board the ship of globalisationThis book addresses not only legal science, but social sciences in general. As the only author ranked most-cited in six disciplines in China, Deng has a broader concern than most writers who confine their studies within the narrow boundaries of particular academic disciplines. This shall interest readers on a wider scale in the international marketThis book will open up the discussions on alternative or indigenous studies in international social sciences. Although seemingly a topic addressing China's jurisprudence, readers from other cultures, nations and disciplines shall find this book inspiring to the extent that it provides fresh perspectives than the West-dominated ones that have been leading the globalisation of law
