Summary
Revisiting the ways in which her own experiences as a Japanese-American woman have informed her approach to the law, Matsuda offers powerful insight into how our collective experiences inform our understanding of the law. From stories of the Japanese-American internment camps to her reactions to racist images in movies, she explores how our identity can contribute to a vision of a more just society. Matsuda also focuses on applying a new multicultural and feminist theory of jurisprudence to specific legal issues, weighing hate speech against academic freedom, considering how women are viewed by the criminal justice system, and setting an agenda for progressive civil liberties
