Beard Books Reprint in 2000, of the 1907 G.R. Putnam's Sons edition.

These illuminating and thought-provoking lectures were prepeared by the author for delivery at Harvard Univesity Law School. As he died before he had the opportunity to present them, they were published posthumously.

The content covers the nature of law and legislation and expounds on the differences between the written and unwritten law. It ventures into the areas of government and politics. The entire field of human conduct is exposed, starting with conduct and its regulation in primitive society. This engrossing analysis commences with the search for the answer to the question: What is law?
