Review quote

... the book is a fine set of essays; all of the contributions are clear and thoughtful, and most of them are powerful./ Virtually every essay in the volume is deserving of detailed comments. A brief review can do no more than touch on a few points./ ... an important and sophisticated contribution to contemporary jurisprudence./ ... for anyone interested in legal philosophy rather than in charlatanry, the book can be recommended very highly indeed./ Matthew H.
Kramer, The Cambridge Law Journal, 1998.
