What Others Have Said

“This 50th anniversary reexamination of Hart’s influential theory of the criminal law should interest both practicing attorney and any layman stupefied by the changes in both law and society going on around us. While the book is worth its price just for making Hart’s long-ago memo accessible to a new generation of readers, its focus is a collection of essays. The purpose of the reconsideration acknowledges that the theoretical underpinnings of criminal law have changed so dramatically- alarmingly, even-that some notice should be taken. Read this book. Then think about it.”
—James Srodes, The American Spectator
