It enables the reader to develop a good understanding of the theories of the different schools of jursiprudence, and to appreciate the contributions made to legal theory by leading jurists and others from the Ancient Greeks to the postmodernists.

This ninth edition includes new chapters on The Philosophy of Human Rights; Globalisation and the Legal Order; and Law, Language and Literature; together with over 30 new extracts from modern sources, bringing the debate right up to date.

  • Covers Aristotle, Raz, Habermas, Unger, Coleman, Perry, Kramer, Nelken and Iris Marion Young
  • Contains a chapter on Dworkin’s interpretivism, as well as sections on the theory of human rights, on Bourdieu’s legal thought, on Nussbaum’s ‘frontiers of justice’, on global justice, and on Murphy’s natural law
  • Places emphasis on Hart, particularly the “Postscript” and the commentary this has provoked
