"Taiwo proposes the novel, even startling thesis that 'an adequate Marxist theory of law must locate itself in the natural law tradition.' Examining Marx's early as well as later works, Taiwo claims that Marx moved from a position of legal rationalism to legal naturalism, finding the source of natural law in society."―Choice
