Published: June 1964
Publisher: Yale University Press
Country of Publication: USA
Format: Hardback
Price: Out of print

This is an important book. The background to it is the age-old controversy whether the validity of "law" rests solely on formal criteria (Positivists), or an a moral element in addition to formal criteria (Naturalists). Professor Fuller argues persuasively in support of the latter."—Cambridge Law Journal

"Although this book is small, its content is both deep and thought provoking. It should be read not only by Professor Fuller's colleagues in the teaching of jurisprudence, but also by all those academics and practicing lawyers who seriously maintain that their education did not cease with law school."—Ralph F. Bischoff, New York Law Journal

"The Morality of Law will find a place among the important books in the history of American legal philosophy. It includes insights into the relations between morality and law, and advances a theory of law of great practical relevance. . . . [This] is the best discussion of the demands of the rule of law in existing literature, . . . filled . . . with many brilliant insights. . . . The book should be widely read."—Robert S. Summers, Journal of Legal Education
