Jurisprudence: Themes and Conceptstakes 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.

This unique study offers a comprehensive analysis of American jurisprudence from its emergence in the later stages of the nineteenth century through to the present day. The author argues that it is a mistake to view American jurisprudence as a collection of movements and schools which have emerged in opposition to each other. By offering a highly original analysis of legal formalism, legal realism, policy science, process jurisprudence, law and economics, and critical legal studies, he demonstrates that American jurisprudence has evolved as a collection of themes which reflect broader American intellectual and cultural concerns.

Issues of legal philosophy taught in jurisprudence courses have also been pondered by brilliant fiction writers. This anthology brings together 40 law-related short stories by writers from various times and places, including Boccaccio, Hawthorne, Tolstoy, Kafka, Cather, and Asimov. Divided into five parts - establishing laws, the judicial system, punishment, criminal matters, and civil matters - and additional subsections, the stories demonstrate how writers have dealt with topics such as equality, finding the truth, capital punishment, murder, and domestic relations. The section introductions draw upon philosophy, psychology, literature, and law to point to the jurisprudential issues, and also utilize pithy epigraphs for this purpose. Questions are raised, but not answered: the reader is left to reflect on the age-old legal and ethical concerns that continue to trouble and inspire us.

New approaches to governance have attracted significant scholarly attention in recent years. Commentators on both sides of the Atlantic have identified, charted and evaluated the rise and spread of forms of governance, forms which seem to differ from previous regulatory and legal paradigms. In Europe, the emergence of the Open Method of Coordination has provided a focal point for new governance studies. In the US, scholarship on issues such as collaborative problem-solving, democratic experimentalism, and problem-solving courts exemplify the interest in similar developments. This book covers diverse policy sectors and subjects, including the environment, education, anti-discrimination, food safety and many others. While some chapters concentrate on the operation of new governance mechanisms in a federal and multilevel context and others look at the relationship between public and private mechanisms and settings, what all the contributors share in common is the pursuit of effective mechanisms for addressing complex social problems, and the challenges they raise for our understanding of law and constitutionalism, and of legal and constitutional values.

This book is an antecedent study on the task facing China's legal science, more strictly speaking OCo China's legal philosophy, in post-Cold War world structure. In broader terms, this is an academic study of China's own OC identityOCO and future in the world structure. The author believes that from 1978 to 2004, in spite of its great achievements, China's legal science has at the same time had some of its grave problems of being exposed. A fundamental problem is its failure to provide a OC Chinese legal ideal pictureOCO as the standard of and direction for evaluating, assessing and guiding China's law/legal development. This is an age of law without China's own ideal picture(s). However, why has China failed to have its own legal ideal picture(s)? Apparently this question in and of itself implies a question, both more directly and fundamentally, of China's legal science, namely why China's legal science has failed to provide China's own legal picture(s)? Or, as an internal critical approach may suggest (namely to critique China's legal science from the perspective of its promised objectives), where is China's legal science heading? Based on this, this book attempts to expound a standard to evaluate China's legal science through a theoretical discussion of this issue, and to further explore the possible direction for China's legal science beyond this age. Contents: Introduction; China's Legal Science and the OC Paradigm of ModernisationOCO A Critique and Reflection on the OC Paradigm of ModernisationOCO The Absence of OC ChinaOCO in China's Legal Scholarship; Further Examination of China's Legal Science (Part I): A Critique of Liang Zhiping's OC Thesis of Legal CultureOCO Further Examination of China's Legal Science (Part II): A Critique of Su Li's OC Thesis of Indigenous ResourcesOCO Tentative Conclusion. Readership: Researchers, professionals, undergraduate and graduate students interested in China's legal science and legal philosophy studies.
