This is a book that deeply affected my thinking . . . well, as much as any book on Jeremy Bentham could. I am very sympathetic with Hart's approach to social philosophy and law, and I found his explication of Bentham's approach exciting as well as informative. Hart's revision of Bentham is very close to my approach to law and ethics. A magnificent book. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0198254687, Paperback)

In his introduction to these closely linked essays Professor Hart offers both an exposition and a critical assesment 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 mistification protecting the law from criticism; his relation to Beccaria; and his conversion to democratic radicalism and a passionate admiration for the United States.
