Jurisprudence is often approached with trepidation, but, thanks to this book, thousands of students throughout Britain and the Commonwealth have discovered the delights of legal theory and, as a result, many have achieved success without tears.

The book reveals the absorbing and challenging nature of legal philosophy in a lucid and enthusiastic manner. Without avoiding the complexities and subtleties of the subject, the author provides an essential guide which is stimulating, inspiring and even amusing. This edition has been revised to reflect recent developments in legal theory.
