In addition to a thorough introduction addressing salient aspects of Jacques Derridas engagement with law, this book comes with an extensive bibliography of sources in English. This provides the reader with a carefully selected list of more than one hundred texts, all of which serve as introductory pathways to Derridas philosophy and in particular to the interaction between Derrida and law. A fine reminder of the trans-disciplinary influence of Jacques Derridas thought, this landmark collection is destined to generate substantial interest in philosophy departments and law schools alike.
