AmeriQuests: Narrative, Law and Society

Approaches to Literature, Law and the Crises of Capitalism Within and Beyond the Americas

This issue features two seminal works, by Marc Angenot and Julius Grey, that contribute to and expand the field of literature and law by bringing to bear historical and political perspectives from two of Canada's most powerful and crucial voices. In addition, the issue continues AmeriQuests longstanding work in the Americas, in the publication of new fiction, and an on-going commitment to reviewing new titles relating to the missions of the journal. In the spirit of the dialogism we hope to promote, we have also included a commentary by one of the authors, Marc Angenot, describing the intellectual path that led him to "1889", and the "social discourse" framework elaborated in its wake.
