Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Weighing the theories of Finnis, Raz, and Dworkin, this small book considers the qualities that make for a successful account of jurisprudence. Dickson (law, University College London) considers the role of evaluation in analysis and justification. The moral consequences theory, Dworkinian methodology, and the argument from function are also discussed. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
