How can universally valid legal principles possibly exist in a manifestly unequal world? In Jurisprudence as Ideology Valerie Kerruish examines how a progressive law may be possible. She presents jurisprudence as a paradigm of legal ideology, unravelling the unjust social dynamic within which law operates and which, she argues, law helps to create. Central to Kerruish's argument is her illuminating concept of rights fetishism': the mystification of the value of law for persons occupying surbordinate positions in social relations'.
