Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
If, like me, you're not overly thrilled with jurisprudence and find it a tad difficult, this book will be good for getting to grips with the basics. It has the majority of the most important theorists covered, and contains just the right amount of depth, providing you with a starting point for further research. It's accessible in that it has a bit of colour (something I always look for when buying my textbooks!) and the layout is easy to look out. I do, however, have a problem with the language. Something is never said in one sentence when it can be said in thirty. The language is also overly-complex, and I often had to look up definitions in a dictionary- something quite unusual for me. It could be better... but it will do.
