As critical scholars interested in the legal aspects of international economic institutions, our concern in this chapter is to determine whether Empire provides us with any new tools with which to advance or refine our analysis and critique. More specifically, given Empire's self-professed juridical orientation, we ask whether the text helps us to understand the role that law plays in the current global order. So, in our reading of Empire, we investigate the legal contours of the ostensibly new imperialism whose arrival it heralds.
