Synopsis: This is a brief introduction to the major issues in legal philosophy. In twelve short chapters, George Fletcher offers an interesting and accessible overview of such topics as morality, justice, desert, consent, duty, and feminist legal theory. In each case he not only introduces the basic ideas but considers important arguments in the contemporary literature and raises provocative original claims of his own. As a single-author text by a well-known legal theorist, The Basic Concepts of Legal Thought has no direct competition and should commend itself to students and scholars alike. This book is intended for students in philosophy of law, jurisprudence, legal issues courses.

From the Back Cover: In contemporary American society, law has nearly achieved the status of civil religion. Legal issues pervade many aspects of daily life; the media report aggressively on trials, pending legislation, and new decisions by the courts. Legally trained executives now run major motion picture studios, corporations, and universities. They speak to each other in the language of jurisprudence. Understanding the law today is an important aspect of literacy in American culture.
