Textbook on jurisprudence
Students of jurisprudence often approach this complex subject with a sense of fear. This book provides a clear user friendly analysis of the major theories and controversies of jurisprudence. Whilst the subject is presented in sufficient detail for the student to gain an accurateunderstanding, they will not be left feeling confused and bewildered. The book starts by examining the nature of jurisprudence, then goes on to outline the content, implications and problems of the major legal theories. This third edition has been expanded to include material on Islamicjurisprudence and postmodern legal theory.
