Jurisprudence of National Identity: Kaleidoscopes of Imperialism and Globalisation from Aotearoa New Zealand
Presenting a unique blend of historical and contemporary research from a range of interdisciplinary and theoretical analysis, this book examines the intersection of 'race', gender and national identity. Focusing on New Zealand, the book highlights the ways in which shifts in national identity shape and limit legal claims for redress for historical racial injustices internationally.
• Analyses the identity configurations produced by NZ's process of 'settling' colonial injustices and highlights the wider relevance for other groups such as Australian aborigines and Native Americans;
• Traces the connections and discontinuities between the free trade imperialism of the mid-19th Century and the Free Trade Globalisation of the late 20th Century;
• Rich, rigorous interdisciplinarity and use of a range of theoretical perspectives provides insights relevant to legal theorists, feminists and legal scholars internationally.
