provokes thoughts but not answers,
This review is from: Taking Rights Seriously (Paperback)
There are harder works to read in jurisprudence. Ronald Dworkin's book is a modern classic, and it is thought provoking and a great introduction to many of the topics in the field. It's good.
My concern is that he uses a good bit of the book to bash H.L.A. Hart's theory of law. Fine. That COULD have been a useful way to present ideas, but instead Mr. Dworkin provides a very thin strawman of Hart's real argument. And, then, predictably bashes it for its weakness!
So it goes. Dworkin can be a powerful writer, and the book is worth knowing and worth reading.
