"Jurisprudence: Theory & Context is aimed primarily at students new to the study of jurisprudence, but also offers benefits to scholars in the field. It explains the often complex and difficult ideas in legal philosophy clearly, while avoiding the distortion that can come from over-simplification." "As well as introducing the reader to the fundamental themes in legal philosophy, Jurisprudence: Theory & Context also describes and comments critically on the writing of the foremost legal theorists. The text is supplemented by Suggested Further Readings, which contain references to related materials." "For the third edition, the book has been expanded and updated, with new topics added, and the most recent scholarship noted and discussed."--BOOK JACKET.
