Legal theory

"Why do some rules have the status of law while others do not? Is law simply a matter of rules anyway? What is justice? Legal Theory asks questions such as these and explains some of the answers that legal theorists have given over the ages, from Ancient Greece to the present day." -- Provided by publisher
