An excellent study...[Shklar] presents a skillful analysis and criticism of what legal scholar-philosophers...have written...Provocative--due to the author's directness, confidence, and clarity--for she offers more intellectual excitement than can be found in textbooks on jurisprudence. (American Political Science Review)
[Shklar] has written a startling and original essay criticizing most of contemporary legal philosophy...[This book] is written with a masterful style and a force and conviction rare in legal scholarship. The broad questions presented on its pages are fundamental to a proper conception of the tasks of legal philosophy...In particular, her analysis of legalism is a fully convincing explanation of the connection between law, and ethics and politics; and a demonstration of the need for law to come forth from its not-so-splendid solitude...The abundance of issues which Professor Shklar raises and examines brilliantly from her point of view make her book a constant pleasure to read. From any point of view, Legalism is a highly original and rewarding contribution to legal philosophy. (Lloyd L. Weinreb Harvard Law Review)
