The Concept of Law Clarendon Law SeriesD 80s mounted a series of challenges to Hart's Concept of Law It seemed that Hart let these challenges go unanswered until after his death in 1992 his answer to Dworkin's criticism was discovered among his papers In this valuable and long awaited new edition Hart presents an Epilogue in which he answers Dworkin and some of his other most influential critics including Fuller and Finnis Written with the same clarity and candor for which the first edition is famous the Epilogue offers a sharper interpretation of Hart's own views rebuffs the arguments of critic. I think this book is an enthralling read though when I say that to other people they tend to laugh at me It's of course the definitive modern statment of legal positivism A laser sharp critiue of Austinian positivism and an attractive theory of law as positive legal authority constrained by rules which extend beyond individual authorities Hart's theory makes room for democratic style legislative authorities without falling into either a naturalismmoralism about rules or a commands backed by threats of force positivism
