In his introduction to these closely linked essays Professor Hart offers both an exposition and a critical assessment of some central issues in jurisprudence and political theory. Some of the essays touch on themes to which little attention has been paid, such as Bentham's identification of the forms of mysitification protecting the law from criticism; his relation to Beccaria; and his conversion to democratic radicalism and a passionate admiration for the United States.

"A collection of ten essays that comprise Professor Hart's exposition and critical assessment of the jurisprudence and political theory of Jeremy Bentham...All are thoughtful, clearly executed, and important in their contribution to modern jurisprudence. Professor Hart's book bestows various gifts: a detailed analysis of neglected texts in the corpus of Bentham's works, an elaboration of Hart's own theory of legal powers, a critique of Dworkin's view of the role of morality in law, and much more...A remarkable achievement."--Harvard Law Review"Each essay reaffirms the opinion that Hart is the best living writer on law, rights, and morality."--Ethics"Students of contemporary legal and political philosophy as well as students of Bentham will be grateful for this elegant and challenging set of essays."--The Philosophical Review "A collection of ten essays that comprise Professor Hart's exposition and critical assessment of the jurisprudence and political theory of Jeremy Bentham....All are thoughtful, clearly executed, and important in their contribution to modern jurisprudence.
