5.0 out of 5 stars Stunningly insightful 3 Feb 1999
By A Customer
Hart, one of the most eminent professors of our time, has woven society into a neat summary of the issues that affect our everyday lives. The book is certainly readable and deals with many moral issues such as prostitution, sex and violence. However this is definitely a book for the serious reader and his points are illustrated in graphic detail. As you read the book, you realise that Professor Hart really was one of the great thinkers of our times.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great source for any anti-censorship, etc. person 10 Aug 2000
By Karl Burton - Published on Amazon.com
I first read the 1963 edition in a course called "Philosophy of Law" at Stanford in '66, and it's one of the few texts from then that I know I have in the attic, and have read at least five times since. It's just a little book, but invaluable.
He organizes the arguments around the issue of the legalization of prostitution, but the specific arguments are made to carry the water of all the similar issues. It is dense, but beautifully written and beautifully argued, you just have to read it a bit slowly to let each paragraph soak in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Hart clasic 14 Oct 2000
By M. Golkar - Published on Amazon.com
H.L.A. Hart is perhaps the 20th century's greatest legal philosopher, and this small book is a powerful expression of his views on the relationship between law and morality. Simply put, Hart takes the side of John Stuart Mill on the issue of legal regulation of vice. The arguments are straightforward, and Hart gives opposing viewpoints a fair hearing before offering his rebutalls.
