    Review quote
    As an advocate Dworkin is tirelessly fluent and endlessly inventive... and this is a surprisingly fraternal book, open, busy, engaging and teeming with ideas. It will give many readers a great deal of pleasure and instruction. John Dunn Times Literary Supplement September 2002 Laws Empire stands out for intellectual deftness, elegance and surprisingness. Alan Ryan New Society September 2002 Laws Empire is a rich and multilayered work ... unusually accessible for a work dealing with abstract questions at such a high level. It is an ambitious book, and it does not disappoint the expectations appropriate to a major work by an important thinker. Thomas Nagel London Review of Books September 2002 Breaks new ground in a way that is both provocative and convincing. D.D. Raphael Times Higher Education Supplement September 2002
