Book: After Secular Law

Just published: A contributed volume informed by political theology, "After Secular Law", edited by Winnifred Fallers Sullivan (SUNY, Buffalo), Robert A. Yelle (University of Memphis), and Mateo Taussig-Rubbo (SUNY, Buffalo), has become available from Stanford Law Books (September 2011).

Included are chapters such as: Robert A. Yelle, "Moses' Veil: Secularization as Christian Myth" (pp. 23-42); Banu Bargu (New School for Social Research), "Stasiology: Political Theology and the Figure of the Sacrificial Enemy" (pp. 140-59); and Bruce Rosenstock (University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign), "Against Sovereign Impunity: The Political Theology of the International Criminal Court" (pp. 160-77).

Excerpt (from the editors' introduction): "Schmitt's own concept of political theology and of the influence of Jewish and Christian theological traditions, most notably the writings of Paul, on modernity has engaged scholars at the intersection of political and legal theory, philosophy, and theology. Several essays in this volume take up a consideration of Schmitt's challenge to secular liberalism."
