A Zimmermann 

Western Legal Theory: History, Concepts and Perspectives enables readers to gain a holistic appreciation of the law by presenting a broad collection of ideas concerning the nature of law. The author draws from a number of social disciplines to provide a rounded sense of what law really is and how it should work in society. Western Legal Theory: History, Concepts and Perspectives discusses a wide range of theories and theorists, and also traces the historical developments of Western legal thought from ancient times to the present day. With a focus on the historical and contemporary role of philosophy in the interpretation of law, Western Legal Theory: History, Concepts and Perspectives provides a fascinating insight into the development of law and a comprehensive analysis of current legal thought. Western Legal Theory: History, Concepts and Perspectives is ideal for students of legal theory and jurisprudence, legal history, political philosophy, and legal practitioners and general readers interested in the theories underpinning our legal institutions and framework.

· The place of philosophy in the creation and application of law as well as the different ways in which judges, lawyers and parliaments approach law
