Jurisprudence explores fundamental questions about law and justice from a philosophical and theoretical perspective. Rather than merely describing the field, the book provides rigorous evaluation of jurisprudential arguments and explains in clear, accurate and accessible terms, the complex andcutting-edge debates which define the field of contemporary jurisprudence. The book draws on legal cases, statutes, constitutional provisions and international human rights instruments and applies jurisprudential theories to topical legal controversies to illustrate the importance, interest and relevance of jurisprudence. The subject is presented in a way which integrates,synthesises and comments on the material, so as to bring the different theorists into dialogue with each other.
