Product description


"The first thing to strike you about this remarkable book is its ambition...In Justice for Hedgehogs all of Dworkin's great talent is on display, the themes overwhelming in their sheer bigness...The easy material is handled in a way that adds depth, while the complex ideas are communicated so deftly you forget that in the hands of a less elegant writer (or more confused mind) they would be incomprehensible." --New Humanist, March/April 2011, Conor Gearty

"The first thing to be said about this remarkable book is that it has nothing to do with animal rights...Justice for Hedgehogs is not a work of vapid generalisation. It is full of sustained argument and arresting observations drawn from a lifetime of thought and a great armoury of knowledge...Dworkin makes a formidable case for his two rules, presented with insight, wit and forensic elegance." --Spectator, 19 March 2011, Jonathan Sumption

"Dworkin is a very impressive writer, with what his early prey, H.L.A. Hart, is said to have described as a `fluent and somewhat elusive analytical style'. He has a keen lawyerly eye for the way to present a case, and is indefatigable in doing so. He knows a great deal, and deploys what he knows with admirable skill. His works are proper objects of wonder."
--Times Higher Education, 27 January 2011, Simon Blackburn
