This fifth edition of Asking the Law Question significantly improves and updates the text bringing it firmly into the legal theory consciousness of the third decade of the twenty-first century.

It contains many completely re-written and a few new subsections: a new opening to the book; an extended discussion of the ancient constitution in connection to political history; additional discussion of Indigenous science and critique of mainstream Western science; a completely revised section on law and economics to take account of behavioural economics; a brief discussion of feminist posthumanism; and a new section on decolonisation.
