Description

Jurisprudence: Themes and Concepts offers an original introduction to, and critical analysis of, the central themes studied in jurisprudence courses. The book is presented in three parts: the first two contain general themes with corresponding tutorial questions, and the third contains advanced topics. Every chapter in the book gives guidance on further reading.

Accessible, interdisciplinary and socially informed, this book has been revised to take into account the latest developments in jurisprudential scholarship.
