Legal Philosophies

"A wide range of issues and topics in the jurisprudential field is discussed in this book. It concentrates particularly on recent legal theorists such as Rawls and Dworking, whose work is highly sophisticated and can be difficult to grasp. Harris: Legal Philosophies is designed to make such modern legal theories accessible to the beginner, while at the same time stimulating the reader to further consideration of the subject. This edition includes developments in the jurisprudential literature, including critical legal studies, Marxist legal theory and the economic analysis of law."
