  • Law and Objectivityby Kent Greenawalt

    Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 54.99 US$ 47.29

    In modern times the idea of the objectivity of law has been undermined by skepticism about legal institutions, disbelief in ideals of unbiased evaluation, and a conviction that language is indeterminate.

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 275.00
