`Every essay in this collection contains many interesting and important claims, insights, and speculations, if not 'about law', then about legal theory ' Brian H. Bix, The Cambridge Law Jounral `These essays of Gardner are some of the most interesting and challenging contributions to the debate about the nature of law in recent years ' Kevin Toh, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews `The result is a seminal body of exceptionally ground-clearing and lucid thinking on some fundamental arguments and assumptions of legal theory. The volume brings together Gardner's most celebrated essays in general jurisprudence, written over more than a decade, along with some unpublished material, particularly in the essay on the "rule of law" (chapter 8) and the closing methodological reflection on "law in general ' Maris Koepcke Tinture, American Journal of Jurisprudence
