Its erudite elegance means that it will serve as an excellent introduction to jurisprudence for undergraduates, as well as providing a major contribution to legal philosophy. MacCormick reaffirms the dialectic between the universal and the particular. * James Lee, University of Birmingham, Jurisprudence * Rhetoric and the Rule of Law is a fine work. It is stimulating: it makes the reader want to argue and test its tenets. It is too good to be read only by legal theorists. * Joe Thomson, Edinburgh Law Review, Vol 13, *
