“This is a sophisticated, densely-argued, original book, which engages in current jurisprudential debates in an informed and subtle manner.  The interpretation offered demonstrates breadth and imagination and will inevitably be controversial.
...this is a stimulating and thought-provoking book, one which gives ample evidence of the vibrancy of current work on the thought of Jeremy Bentham, and which makes an important contribution to Bentham studies and to jurisprudence in general.” – Michael Lobban, University of London,
Dublin University Law Journal
“This is a strikingly original piece of work that makes a welcome contribution to legal theory, political theory and Bentham studies. It makes rich use of the new Collected Works and of unpublished manuscripts....well-written ...this excellent book succeeds in its main purpose: it confirms Bentham's importance as a resource for contemporary political-theoretical reflection” – Stephen G. Engelmann,
