Written for students who are about to study law for the first time, in just 86 pages the contributors to this deceptively simple-looking volume present their readers with an invaluable and sophisticated introduction to the modern study of law as a dynamic and intellectually rich subject. The book was inspired by a teaching team and course at the University of Strathclyde, which sought to provide students with a map reflecting the diversification in modern legal scholarship. As such, it is also a book that will be of interest to lecturers and law schools looking to develop innovative approaches to teaching that draw upon the latest interdisciplinary debates in law, conceptualised (using Downes’ phrase) as “a rendezvous subject” (p. 1).
