Product description


Wacks has a remarkable ability to convey difficult concepts and ideas without distorting their meaning. (Daniel Bansal, Lecturer in Law, Coventry University)

An admirably clear, extremely helpful, and accurate introduction to this formidable subject. The elegance of the writing and the breadth of knowledge - displayed here in such an easily accessible form - make it essential reading for every student of Jurisprudence. (Stephen Guest, Emeritus Professor of Legal Philosophy, University College London)

The plentiful discussion topics and Wacks' delightful style make this an impressive read. (William A. Edmundson, Regents' Professor of Law and of Philosophy, Georgia State University, Atlanta)

An excellent text which explains complex and difficult ideas in an accessible way. (Christopher Essert, Associate Professor, Faculty of Law, Queen's University, Ontario)

Wacks' writing style is both engaging and enjoyable. (The Student Law Journal)

A book like this cannot help but demonstrate the richness of the subject and how fundamental it is to the development and practice of law. (Tom Garbett, The Law Society Gazette)

Understanding Jurisprudence is a juristic gem that sparkles with insight and shines with clarity, shedding light on numerous challenging topics in a lucidly accessible style. It is an indispensable resource for student and scholar alike, and is a rarity-an academic text that is actually a pleasure to read! (William MacNeil, The Honourable John Dowd Chair in Law, Dean & Head of the School of Law and Justice, Southern Cross University, Australia.)
