Law after ModernityBy Sionaidh Douglas-Scott How can we characterise law and legal theory in the twenty-first century? Law after Modernity argues that we live in an age 'after Modernity' and that legal theory must take account of this fact. The book presents a dynamic analysis of law, which focusses on the richness and pluralism of law, on its historical embeddedness, its cultural contingencies, as well as acknowledging contemporary law's global and transnational dimensions.
 However, Law after Modernity also warns that the complexity, fragmentation, pluralism and globalisation of contemporary law may all too easily perpetuate injustice. In this respect, the book departs from many postmodern and pluralist accounts of law. Indeed, it asserts that the quest for justice becomes a crucial issue for law in the era of legal pluralism, and it investigates how it may be achieved.
 The approach is fresh, contextual and interdisciplinary, and, unusually for a legal theory work, is illustrated throughout with works of art and visual representations, which serve to re-enforce the messages of the book.
Traducción: Como podemos caracterizar el derecho y la teoría jurídica en el siglo XII? Derecho después de la Modernidad sostiene que vivimos en una época 'después de la Modernidad´y la teoría jurídica debe tomar nota de este hecho. El libro presente un análisis dinámico del derecho, que se enfoca en la riqueza y pluralismo del derecho, sus contingencias culturales, al igual que en el reconocimiento de las dimensiones globales y transnacionales del derecho.
Sin embargo, Derecho después de la Modernidad, también advierte que la complejidad, fragmentación, pluralismo y globalización del derecho contemporáneo también puede perpetuar injusticia fácilmente. En este aspecto, el libro se aparta de muchas explicaciones postmoderna y pluralistas del derecho. En realidad, afirma que la búsqueda de justicia se vuelve un asunto crucial en una era de pluralismo jurídico e investiga como puede ser alcanzada. La aproximación es fresca, contextual e interdisciplinaria, y de forma inusual para un libro de teoría jurídica, está ilustrada con trabajos de arte y representaciones visuales, que sirven para recalcar el mensaje del libro.
