Gender and Justice
Ashgate/Dartmouth, 2002 - Law - 482 pages
This title forms part of a series on Anglo-American legal theory. It explores the relationship between gender and justice. The essays have been drawn primarily from lawyers working in the common law tradition. However, work by non-lawyers has been included to assist with the definition of its basic terms. Some terms which are debated are gender, woman, man, and human nature. The aim is to scrutinize the deployment of these without losing the sense of practical reality.
