“Jeannie Suk has written an exemplary book that demonstrates law’s humanity while exploring the deep link between law and the humanities. Her study of the concept of the ‘home’ in law, literature, and social theory is a remarkable contribution to our understanding of the needs and interests of human security.”—Homi K. Bhabha, Anne F. Rothenburg Professor of the Humanities, Harvard University

“A deeply interesting, original, and also a troubling book. Jeannie Suk, in a persuasive analysis that calls on cultural as well as legal understanding, shows dramatically how the law has entered the home in unexpected ways.”—Peter Brooks, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Scholar, Princeton University
