Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Dworkin and His Critics assembles contributions from a simply stellar cast of moral, political, and legal philosophers working in the analytic tradition. Taken together, their essays probe and illuminate virtually every salient aspect of Dworkin's writings on issues in the domain of legal and political morality. With Dworkin's replies, this collection is essential reading for anyone wishing to come to grips with the work of one of the leading thinkers of our time."

Hillel Steiner, University of Manchester

“This is a terrific collection. Dworkin’s work has been hugely influential across a wide range of issues in moral, legal and political philosophy. Here that work is interrogated by a quite outstanding cast of critics, and Dworkin replies. For once, ‘indispensable’ seems about right.”

Adam Swift, Oxford University

"In this collection we see why Ronald Dworkin is the most important theorist of Anglo-American jurisprudence in this era: not only his clarity and vision but his unique ability to stimulate thoughtful and imaginative commentary. This is the rare collection worth reading for the whole as well as its parts."

Philip Bobbitt, The University of Texas
