The first section of this reader deals with general questions about morality and law, drawing both on the traditional literature discussing legal positivism and on contemporary debates about the role of law as a tool in pursuit of equality. It also looks at a series of questions revolving around the tensions between the role of law as a protector of individual liberty and as a tool of democratic self-rule. The second section considers a series of specific contemporary issues in which the questions considered in the first section present themselves especially forcefully. Lacks an index. Paper edition (unseen), $34.95. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
