This outstanding new volume provides a comprehensive and authoritative survey of the theories, topics, subjects, and discourses that now feature in the law school and undergraduate legal studies curricula.Written by many of today's leading figures, each of the 42 newly-commissioned survey articles takes the reader through the basic theoretical concepts, problems, theories, and themes of contemporary legal theory.

While the text is written as a guide for the uninitiated, the authors strive to make an original and substantial contribution to the field.Taken together, the volume provides an unparalleled work of reference for teaching and research in philosophy of law, jurisprudence, legal theory, and legal studies.
