`Both as a technique for selling theory to students, and as a way of introducing lay readers to controversies over the role of law and legal institutions in the body politic, the case-system [employed by the author] has much to recommend it, and this book, always clear and perceptive, is a good advertisement for it.' - Times Literary Supplement
`... brilliantly achieved ... a stimulating read.' - Lord Wilberforce, Political Studies
