New Research Books Publishing in February

Law and the Question of the Animal

We are excited to be publishing three new GlassHouse books in February - including new titles in the acclaimed Nomikoi Critical Legal Thinkers series and the second book in the Law, Justice and Ecology series. The new titles take on areas as diverse as music, political philosophy and environmental ethics. Read on for more details of our new publishing for February. 

Law and the Question of the Animal, edited by Yoriko Otomo and Edward Mussawir, addresses the problem of ‘animal life’ in terms that go beyond the usual extension of liberal rights to animals.

Justice as Improvisation by Sara Ramshaw theorises the relationship between justice and improvisation through the case of the New York City cabaret laws.

Althusser and Law, edited Laurent Desutter, is the first book specifically dedicated to the place of law in Louis Althusser’s philosophy. The growing importance of Althusser’s philosophy in contemporary debates on the left has - for practical and political, as well theoretical reasons - made a sustained consideration of his conception of law more necessary than ever.
