Failed Revolutions: Social Reform and the Limits of Legal Imagination

Synopsis

"Focusing on the crucial discipline of the law, Failed Revolutions casts light on the many forces working against meaningful social change. Through the construction of authority, the marginalization of dissenting views, and institutions designed to replicate established opinion, the legal profession systematically blocks not just the possibility of change but even our ability to imagine it. Failed Revolutions will be of particular interest for lawyers and legal scholars, but its wide implications make it valuable reading for any citizen concerned with the possibility of social reform."
