This unique study offers a comprehensive analysis of American jurisprudence from its emergence in the later stages of the nineteenth century through to the present day. The author argues that it is a mistake to view American jurisprudence as a collection of movements and schools which haveemerged in opposition to each other. By offering a highly original analysis of legal formalism, legal realism, policy science, process jurisprudence, law and economics, and critical legal studies, he demonstrates that American jurisprudence has evolved as a collection of themes which reflect broaderAmerican intellectual and cultural concerns.

Editorial Reviews

`Patterns of American Jurisprudence is an extremely thorough, informative and persuasive study of American jurisprudence since the 1870s. Duxbury's historical analyses of legal realism and law and economics are highly original and impressive, and his chapter on critical legal studies is thebest thing I have ever read on the subject.'Richard A. Posner, Chief Judge, United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit
