Review from previous edition
An admirably clear, extremely helpful, and accurate, up-to-date introduction to this formidable subject. The elegance of the writing and the breadth of knowledge - displayed here in such an easily accessible form - make it essential reading for every student of Jurisprudence. (Professor Stephen Guest, Professor of Legal Philosophy, University College London
The latest edition of Wacks Understanding Jurisprudence will no doubt remain popular with many undergraduate students and merits its place too. (Robin Lister, Bradford University, The Law Teacher, 2012
Where and whenever I will exert any influence on the reading list for a course on jurisprudence, I will make sure that Professor Raymond Wacks' excellent book Understanding Jurisprudence will be included. (Carl-Fredrik Choler, University of Orebro, Sweden
