    DescriptionHow should a judge's moral convictions bear on his judgments about what the law is? In his new book, Ronald Dworkin argues that the question is much more complex than it has often been taken to be and charts a variety of dimensions - semantic, jurisprudential, and doctrinal - in which law and morals are undoubtedly interwoven. Dworkin's new collection of essays and original chapters is a model of lucid, logical, and impassioned reasoning that will advance the crucially important debate about the roles of justice in law.

    Review quote
    "Justice in Robes does more to open up new options in our thinking about the rule of law than a whole library full of books by opinionated pragmatists or by the careful conceptual purveyors of a purely analytic jurisprudence." - Jeremy Waldron, New York Review of Books "Dworkin explores the relationship between law and morality, elaborating his previous arguments and replying to a number of prominent objections." - Cass Sunstein, New Republic"
