Social Order and the Limits of Law: A Theoretical Essay by Iredell Jenkins

Professor Jenkins develops a systematic theory of the origins, the ends, and the functions of law. He then applies this theory to the problems that law encounters and the conditions that it must satisfy if it is to be an effective force in society.

Originally published in 1980.
