Reading for the Law is a dynamic, learned, and powerful intervention into an important interdisciplinary field of inquiry, undertaken by a scholar with deep knowledge of the key discourses she critiques and a consistently engaged point of view, that comprehensively situates its particular arguments in dialogue with the field of law and literature as it has evolved over the last two decades. The range of materials it analyzes, the amount of original research Krueger has conducted, and the breadth of knowledge she demonstrates across literature, history, and law is quite stunning. I do not know of another book that covers so much ground without ever losing sight of its commitment to transforming the way we proceed as scholars so as to further a larger project of advocacy.
