Law and Politics in British Colonial Thought
By

Rating
This collection focuses on the role of European law in colonial contexts. Its distinctiveness lies in the debate that it initiates with recent treatments of this theme in a series of widely read works written largely from within the framework of postcolonial studies, which implicitly discuss colonial deployments of European law and politics via the concept of ideology.
