Description
Widely regarded as the most important legal theorist of the twentieth century, Kelsen is best known for his formulation of the ‘pure theory of law’. The present volume, first published in 1945, afforded him the opportunity to present to English-speaking readers the most systematic and comprehensive exposition of his jurisprudence. The work is also an extension of his theories, ‘to embrace the problems and institutions of English and American law as well as those of the Civil Law countries’. Kelsen’s legal theory is truly general in that it accounts for the Common Law as well as the Civil Law.
