Review quote

The leading work in the field ... I know of no comparable work of this scope and depth in the study of Dworkin's work. -- David A. Richards, New York University A remarkable piece of work. It provides an invaluable survey and a sure guide to Dworkin's legal and political philosophy. Guest sets out to present a comprehensive, concise and accessible account of his work, which he has done with clarity, honesty and even the occasional hint of a smile.
