This book deals with the issue of conscientious law-breaking - those instances in which individuals believe they have good moral reasons for breaking a particular law. This study is a comprehensive philosophical and legal analysis of the grey area in which the foundations of law and morality clash. It views these oblique circumstances from two perspectives: that of the person who faces a possible conflict between the claims of morality and law and must choose whether or not to obey the penal code; and that of the people who make and uphold laws and must decide whether to treat someone with a moral claim to disobey differently from ordinary lawbreakers.
