Jurisprudence: Themes and Concepts takes an innovative approach to the study of jurisprudence. Drawing together a range of specialists making original contributions, it provides a summary, analysis and critique of basic themes in, and major contributions to, the study of jurisprudence.

The book explores issues and ideas in jurisprudence in a way that integrates them with legal study more broadly, avoiding the tendency in recent years for the subject to become overly inward-looking, specialist and technical.

Since the approach taken is an interdisciplinary one, it also makes connections with contemporary issues in political and social theory – such as changing conceptions of sovereignty, globalisation, the role of rights, and the relationship of other forms of power to the legal realm – in order to situate current jurisprudential debates.

The book is divided into three parts: Law and Politics, Legal Reasoning, and Law and Modernity. Its coverage is therefore broad and links legal, political, philosophical and social analysis to wider contemporary concerns with which the study of jurisprudence should be engaged.
