... an excellent and thought-provoking book ... a range of considerations and practical difficulties bringing theory and history together are well problematized and explored in a number of chapters. The reader finishes this book with a sense of the potential for interdisciplinary research both between theory and history, and with wider disciplines. One is left with the feeling that interdisciplinary researchers now have some additional material to add to their arsenal, and should feel bolstered in their belief that legal theory and history are excellent bedfellows. -- Cerian Charlotte Griffiths, Lancaster University * The Journal of Legal History *
It is a complex volume and encompasses a number of different understandings of what a renewed rapport between legal theory and history might entail, but its most compelling claim is that there were not two schools of jurisprudence or legal theory in the twentieth-century, but three: as well as positivism and natural law, there was the "historical" school. -- Tim Rogan * The Cambridge Law Journal *
... a fascinating and stimulating collection of papers that ought certainly to remind legal theorists that there is much more to their subject than the standard names that seem to dominate many jurisprudence courses. -- Geoffrey Samuel, Professor of Law, Kent Law School * Comparative Legal History *
The volume is an important contribution to the topic, which has seen something of a resurgence lately and one from which both legal theorists and legal historians will greatly benefit. -- Shivprasad Swaminathan * The Canadian Journal of Law & Jurisprudence *
Law in Theory and History offers much to the reader. It addresses issues of significant historical and theoretical interest from a ... variety of perspectives. -- David Fraser, University of Nottingham * Modern Law Review *
