Description: "This is an exception in that it comes as close as is feasible to resenting legal philosophy in popular form. . . . He has managed the considerable trick of making his thoughts palatable and even entertaining."-- Library Journal "An important contribution of general interest to the study of the nature and function of law. . . . Trenchant comment abounds throughout the book, and there is an immense amount of the most valuable material here, as well as considerable food for thought."-- Law Times "Essential reading for all who are interested in following the growth of jurisprudence and in relating it to the sound scientific analysis of law."-- The Annals "Throughout this profound, imaginative and keenly analytical work, [Professor Fuller] demonstrates his continuing concern with the tension in morality and law between the "is" and the "ought." [He] focuses on the transformation of the law "that is" into the law that society thinks it "ought to be." . . . His treatment of what he terms the "inner morality of law" is meaningful and educational to both lawyer and legislator alike. . . . A book of ideas should, of course, provoke and contribute new thoughts. This book does both."-- New York Law Forum "A most valuable and challenging essay on the nature of law."-- Choice "For the beginner as well as the seasoned student of legal philosophy, The Morality of Law contains an excellent assortment of ideas demanding further thought."--Edwin W. Tucker, Indiana Law Journal "This is an important book. The background to it is the age-old controversy whether the validity of "law" rests solely on formal criteria (Positivists), or an a moral element in addition to formal criteria (Naturalists).Professor Fuller argues persuasively in support of the latter."-- Cambridge Law Journal "Although this book is small, its content is both deep and thought provoking. It should be read not only by Professor Fuller's colleagues in the teaching of jurisprudence, but also by all those academics and practicing lawyers who seriously maintain that their education did not cease with law school."--Ralph F. Bischoff, New York Law Journal " The Morality of Law will find a place among the important books in the history of American legal philosophy. It includes insights into the relations between morality and law, and advances a theory of law of great practical relevance. . . . [This] is the best discussion of the demands of the rule of law in existing literature, . . . filled . . . with many brilliant insights. . . . The book should be widely read." -- Robert S. Summers, Journal of Legal Education "The book is a provocative one which is certain to excite much academic comment here and abroad."-- Harvard Law Record "To both students and scholars, thiswork is highly recommended. The author has opened many new avenues of inquiry while dealing with the many old questions raised in any discussion of morality and law and of natural versus positive law."--Gerald W. Johnson, Tennessee Law Review "Throughout this profound, imaginative and keenly analytical work, [Fuller] demonstrates his continuing concern with the tension in morality and law between the 'is' and the 'ought'. . . . A book of ideas should . . . provoke and contribute new thoughts. This book does both."--Barry R. Mandelbaum, New York Law Forum
