Summary

This book is a collection of original and thought-provoking essays devoted to exploring sexuality in relation to the law. They address a number of key controversies across a range of jurisdictions. Drawing upon contemporary social theory, cultural and Queer studies, feminist scholarship, and traditional and critical legal thought, this international collection of essays challenges both the terms of contemporary sexual politics/engagement with the law and some basic assumptions about the nature of law. Innovative and accessible, Legal Queeries is invaluable reading for students, scholars and all those with an interest in law, cultural and gender studies.
