Book description

Legal positivism is one of the fundamental theories of jurisprudence studied in law and related fields around the world. This volume addresses how legal positivism is perceived and makes the case for why it is relevant for contemporary legal theory. The Cambridge Companion to Legal Positivism offers thirty-three chapters from leading scholars that provide a comprehensive commentary on the fundamental ideas of legal positivism, its history and major theorists, its connection to normativity and values, its current development and influence, as well as on the criticisms moved against it.

Reviews

‘This excellent addition to the 'Cambridge Companions to Law' series [...] plays a critical role in grounding legal positivism within current trends and reaffirming its continued relevance ... Under the keen editorial guidance of Spaak (Stockholm Univ.) and Mindus (Uppsala Univ.), the logical organization, caliber of contributors, and emphasis on demonstrating the current relevance of legal positivism all come together to make this an essential volume for both students and scholars.’
