The Law, Meaning, and Violence Series publishes books that explore the way meanings are constructed in law's narratives, that measures the connections among those narratives and institutions and practices of law, and that explore the ways those narratives, practices, and institutions embody and give voice to power and violence. While we are interested in books that take existing definitions of law seriously and explore them vigorously, we also invite works that expand and transcend existing definitions by either putting state law in context, by exploring new possibilities for world-creating normative orders, or by examining the lawlike elements of social practices.
