A New Book Series: Law, Knowledge, and Imagination

Dean Ken Randall and the School of Law at The University of Alabama are pleased to announce a new book series – Law, Knowledge, and Imagination – edited by Austin Sarat, the Justice Hugo L. Black Visiting Senior Faculty Scholar and the William Nelson Cromwell Professor of Jurisprudence and Political Science at Amherst College.

Books in the series, some of which are published by Cambridge University Press and others by The University ofAlabama Press, explore the ways law is known and imagined in a diverse array of disciplines, including political science, history, cultural studies, philosophy, and science. The series examines the conjunctions of law, knowledge, and imagination as they play out in debates about theory and policy and speak to venerable questions as well as contemporary issues.

Books published so far include:

§ Dissenting Voices in American Society: The Role of Judges, Lawyers, and Citizens
§ Imagining Legality: Where Law Meets Popular Culture

§ Merciful Judgments and Contemporary Society: Legal Problems, Legal Possibilities
§ Sovereignty, Emergency, Legality
§ Speech and Silence in American Law
§ Transitions: Legal Change, Legal Meanings
