""The second edition of Riddall: Jurisprudence brings the book up to date in the light of recent literature. Written in straightforward language, it presents the ideas clearly and concisely and incorporates three important schools of thought that were not included in the previous edition. A number of new chapters have also been added, dealing with, for example, Scandinavian Realists, the 'New Critics', Dworkin's Law's Empire, and Utilitarianism. Existing chapters have been substantially revised, to make this a useful and highly readable addition to the student's library.""
