Beyond synthesis, the book makes a very significant contribution to the scholarship in this field... Kelman both shows the originality of Critical Legal Studies and thoroughly disposes of the common misreading of CLS. The common misreading is that CLS literature stands for the proposition that legal rules are all totally indeterminate and nonbinding, no rule leads you in any direction, all language is hopelessly indeterminate. Kelman suggests that CLS has never made that claim and clarifies what the CLS assertion of indeterminacy really is... A very impressive work. (Frances Olsen UCLA School of Law)
This book should take its place as the most accessible, complete, and lucid treatment of Critical Legal Studies. Kelman is also one of the most interesting members of CLS, and the book has numerous virtues. (Cass R. Sunstein University of Chicago Law School)
From the Back Cover
The author offers an impressive survey of the major Critical Legal Studies writers and their relationship to other schools of legal thought...He strips away hyperbolic rhetoric of fallacious reasoning and exposes what he considers the heart of the CLS position.
