Cultural identity, loosely identified as ethnicity, race or religion, has become increasingly relevant for legal claims and policy arguments. Exploration of legal issues through cultural analyses provides a rich supplement to other approaches—including legal realism, law and economics, and law and society. Drawing on areas such as literary criticism and anthropology, Sarat and Simon navigate new academic territory in this interdisciplinary work.
