Where do i put the edited people?

For Example: 

this chapter of the book was edited by two people, where do i insert that in the reference? 

Macduff, A 2014 edited by Glenn. P., & Rubenstein K  ‘Performing, Citizenship, Embodying Obedience’ Law and democracy: contemporary question, ANU Press, Canberra  

The author is MacDuff, it was edited by Gleen P and Rubenstein K 

is this correct?

Hi Miki,

The way this kind of reference works is like this:
(chapter) author year, 'chapter title' in first initial.last name (ed.), Title of book, publisher, place, page range.

An example of this is seen below

Coleman, S. 2003, 'Democracy in an e-connected world', in R. Davidson (ed.), The e-connected world: risks and opportunities McGill Queens University Press, Montreal, pp. 125-32.

So, I guess your reference would look a bit like this: 

Macduff, A. 2014, 'Performing, citizenship, embodying obedience', in P. Glenn & K. Rubenstein (eds),  Law and democracy: contemporary question, ANU Press, Canberra, pp.xx-xy.
(the page range indicated by xx-xy would be actual page numbers, but I don't know what they are)
