Jurisprudence: Theory and Context is aimed at students new to the study of legal philosophy, while also offering new ideas and perspectives for established scholars. The text explains the often complex and difficult ideas in jurisprudence clearly, while avoiding distortion or oversimplification. As well as introducing the reader to the fundamental themes in legal philosophy, the book also describes and comments critically on the writing of the foremost legal theorists.

The ninth edition contains new material on nearly every page, with significantly updated references and suggested further readings which reflect the most recent scholarship.

"To every topic Brian Bix brings a sharp and discerning intelligence, pointing out weakness as well as strengths in the various approaches. For an overview of jurisprudence that is insightful as well as clear, critical but also generous in its assessments, one can't do better than this book."

— Robert W. Gordon, Stanford Law School
