Editorial Reviews


"Public law scholars and political theorists interested in jurisprudence will find this book rewarding on at least three counts--the originality of its substantive contribution respecting a central and much-debated jurisprudential issue, the lucidity of its argumentation, and its careful reckoning with much of the relevant literature. The first count indicates why law-and-political-science scholars should peruse it. The latter two counts give it great potential utility as a core volume for introducing contemporary American jurisprudence to political science students as part of a graduate or advanced honors seminar in public law. All three counts together make it a delight to read--almost regardless of the extent to which one winds up agreeing or disagreeing with its main argument." The Review of Politics

"This is a very fine book....Burton's account of weighing merits more attention. Much in the account is illuminating and will ring true to anyone with sufficient legal experience. What is true of the account of weighing is true of the book in general. All too often the philosophy of law is not adequately informed by a sound lawyer-like grasp of the law. Judging in Good Faith goes a long way toward correcting this fault. It is a masterful blend of law and philosophy that merits and rewards careful study. Anyone seriously interested in the philosophy of law should study Judging in Good Faith." Richard Warner, Ethics

"Judging in Good Faith is the Old Man and The Sea of jurisprudential literature. Burton's clear, unadorned prose is readily accessible to nonspecialists. If for no other reason than this, the book would be a worthwhile contribution to the literature. Happily, the book manifests numerous other virtues." Raymond A. Belliotti, International Studies in Philosophy

Book Description

Offering an original theory of adjudication based on the ethics of judging in courts of law, this book presents two main theses to oppose conservative theories restricting the scope of adjudication as well as leftist critical theories liberating judges from the rule of law.
