This textbook provides an introduction to and analysis of the major theories and controversies of jurisprudence. Starting with an overview of the nature of jurisprudence, the author then moves on to examine the content, main protagonists, implications, and problems of the major theories in more detail. In doing so, many of the complexities of jurisprudence are broken down to reveal the fascinating philosophical and academic debates that surround this subject.

The admirably clear writing style enables students to gain an appreciation of the many facets of this wide-ranging subject, whilst the new two-colour page layout enhances the user-friendly structure, to allow for easy navigation throughout the text. This is an ideal text for students studying jurisprudence for the first time.
