Expressing views not easily placed within any one school of opinion, this collection of the papers of Tony HonorA(c) reflects the author's contribution, as both critic and participant in debate, to the study of legal philosophy over the last twenty-five years. His wide-ranging essays cover such topics as motivation to conform to the law, norms and obligations, and rights and justice, and conclude with an essay supporting the use of law to encourage or reinforce morality.
'He has borrowed freely but he fights his own corner tenaciously in language which is easily absorbed by legal practitioners and laymen alike. In other words, he does not have to resort to pedantry to put over his ideas and this book will be widely read and enjoyed.'
