    Abstract

    Book synopsis: Through explorations of how identities are created in law, this collection reveals often surprising yet highly significant connections between nationalism, racism and the rule of law. This pursuit of law's 'dark side' ranges widely over the New Europe, East and West and over North America and South Africa, for example. It also ranges widely over many areas of legal study and practice over the social theory of law, over laws relating to citizenship, children, gender, immigrants and refugees and over new legal 'spaces' now being created regionally and globally. In all this, the rule of law itself is shown to result from the conflict between its dependence on national and racial identities and its opposition to them.
