This unique study offers a comprehensive analysis of American jurisprudence from its emergence in the later stages of the nineteenth century through to the present day. The author argues that it is a mistake to view American jurisprudence as a collection of movements and schools which have emerged in opposition to each other. By offering a highly original analysis of legal formalism, legal realism, policy science, process jurisprudence, law and economics, and critical legal studies, he demonstrates that American jurisprudence has evolved as a collection of themes which reflect broader American intellectual and cultural concerns.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Neil Duxbury's splendid book will provide enjoyable and informative reading for anyone interested in jurisprudence ... It is a very fine book that fully deserves the high praise which it will undoubtedly receive. * The Cambridge Law Journal *
In a meticulously researched, coherently structured and extremely readable text Duxbury offers the reader an intellectual history of American jurisprudence brimming with insight and critical analysis. * Legal Studies *
Patterns of American Jurisprudence is an extremely thorough, informative and persuasive study of American jurisprudence since the 1870s. Duxbury's historical analyses of legal realism and law and economics are highly original and impressive, and his chapter on critical legal studies is the best thing I have ever read on the subject. * Richard A. Posner, Chief Judge, United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit *
