About Law's Empire

In this reprint of Law's Empire,Ronald Dworkin reflects on the nature of the law, its given authority, its application in democracy, the prominent role of interpretation in judgement, and the relations of lawmakers and lawgivers to the community on whose behalf they pronounce. For that community, Law's Empire provides a judicious and coherent introduction to the place of law in our lives.

Previously Published by Harper Collins. Reprinted (1998) by Hart Publishing.


“As an advocate Dworkin is tirelessly fluent and endlessly inventive. . . and this is a surprisingly fraternal book, open, busy, engaging and teeming with ideas. It will give many readers a great deal of pleasure and instruction.” –  John Dunn, Times Literary Supplement

“Laws Empire stands out for intellectual deftness, elegance and surprisingness.” –  Alan Ryan, New Society

“Laws Empire is a rich and multilayered work . . . unusually accessible for a work dealing with abstract questions at such a high level. It is an ambitious book, and it does not disappoint the expectations appropriate to a major work by an important thinker.” –  Thomas Nagel, London Review of Books

“Breaks new ground in a way that is both provocative and convincing.” –  D.D. Raphael, Times Higher Education Supplement
