    Abstract

    Book synopsis: This handbook sets out an innovative approach to the theory of law reconceptualising legal theory in a material, socially contextualised and politically radical way. The book is made up of original contributions authored by academics at the forefront of research in legal theory so provides a valuable overview of the discipline. The book is split into six parts: The Spatial The Temporal The Material The Political The Sensorial The Textual Through this structure the handbook brings the law into active discussion with other disciplines, as well as supra-disciplinary debates on the areas of spatiality, temporality, materiality, corporeality, and sensorial studies, capturing the most exciting new and anticipated developments in current legal theory. The handbook will be essential reading for scholars and students of jurisprudence, sociology of law, critical legal studies, socio-legal theory and interdisciplinary legal studies, as well as those people from other disciplines interested in the way the law converses with interdisciplinarity.
