"This collection organizes well-known theorists from many fields into an energizing project mapped by their coordinating passions and concerns. The essays in Left Legalism/Left Critique together form a new interdisciplinary field of left critique."-Dana D. Nelson, author of National Manhood: Capitalist Citizenship and the Imagined Fraternity of White Men "Is it possible to imagine a left legalism that is both politically efficacious and intellectually responsible in the face of the contemporary corruptions of neoliberal political order? In the essays collected here Brown and Halley have assembled a powerful response to hegemony of a liberalism that lacks conviction. They succeed in advancing both a critique of the limits of legalism and a space for thinking of legal struggle as a positive force for projects of liberation."-Thomas Dumm, Amherst College
