Abstract:

"Although [this book] begins with attention to some of the basics of legal thinking, it progresses quickly to fundamental issues of legal theory and current legal conflict. The book's goal is to delve deep into the thought process of lawyers and judges confronted with difficult controversies requiring sophisticated analysis. The book creates an ambitious four-part model of the most critical elements within legal reasoning -- nuances of language, varying circumstances, disputed values, and the roles of political institutions -- to demonstrate the inevitability, but structured predictability, of legal disagreement."--Publisher's website.
