Mounting a lawsuit against someone who has wronged you is a prospect no less fearful than being on the receiving end of such a lawsuit. Litigation in the courts has a reputation for being a byzantine process far removed from ordinary life, often failing to address people's real grievances while adding to their pain. Yes, there is money to be had if you win. But beyond that, what is it all in aid of? In this book John Gardner argues that, in spite of their legal intricacy, many of the questions that perennially occupy the courts in civil cases are actually timeless puzzles about the human condition. The architecture of the law of torts and the law of contract turns out to track the contours of personal life much more closely than you might expect. Using a wide range of examples from literature and life as well as law, Gardner explores big questions about our relationships to our own pasts and our own futures as well as to other people. What are friends for? Why does it matter how your actions turn out? What is the good of saying sorry? Why regret your mistakes? How can anyone be compensated for an irreversible loss? Why would you want to hold onto the life you already have? And what does any of this have to do with all those protracted legal disputes about damaged cars, ruined holidays, and leaky roofs?

In Asking the Law Question, Margaret Davies provides an up-to-date account of traditional and contemporary legal theory. This edition retains the critical and contemporary focus of the first three editions. It has been updated to incorporate discussion of recent works and current trends in legal theory, without losing the emphasis on seeing legal theory in its historical, social and political contexts. This fourth edition includes two new chapters on socio-legal theory and environmental jurisprudence. Legal theory means different things to different scholars. Asking the Law Question reflects the diversity of approaches without attempting to reduce them all into a logical narrative. It is an interdisciplinary work and draws upon a wide range of literary and philosophical sources. Asking the Law Question is an accessible, original and highly readable account of legal philosophy. The text provides succinct explanations of key ideas, as well as in-depth analysis and critique. Suitable for students of jurisprudence, introductory law, feminist legal theory and sociology of law, this book has also proved to be of considerable interest to legal scholars wishing to improve their knowledge of legal theory.

Legality is a profound work in analytical jurisprudence, the branch of legal philosophy which deals with metaphysical questions about the law. In the twentieth century, there have been two major approaches to the nature of law. The first and most prominent is legal positivism, which draws a sharp distinction between law as it is and law as it might be or ought to be. The second are theories that view law as embedded in a moral framework. Scott Shapiro is a positivist, but one who tries to bridge the differences between the two approaches. In Legality, he shows how law can be thought of as a set of plans to achieve complex human goals. His new “planning” theory of law is a way to solve the “possibility problem”, which is the problem of how law can be authoritative without referring to higher laws.

Self-reliant and resilient, Jasper Adams has overcome a childhood tragedy and carved out a life that suits him just fine. At 25, he lives in a modest flat with some interesting perks, has a job that enables him to use his musical talents, volunteers at a local shelter and has a small family of friends-well, two-that he reluctantly relies on and occasionally trusts. Jasper has put up strong walls to maintain this seemingly simple world where he stays protected from life's complications. Carrie Chandler is pretty and smart. And hurting. After the loss of almost everything she has resurrected herself and found purpose in helping others at the Newton Center. But hers is a happy face masking a tortured soul. And her demons are closer than she thinks. When Jasper and Carrie collide, his well-constructed, controlled life starts to crack and he finds himself at a crossroads-desire for something more but reluctance to risk what it takes to get it. As much as they push each other away, an even greater force pulls Jasper and Carrie together. But for them to make a true connection Jasper will have to face some of his own demons - demons that maybe neither he, nor Carrie, can handle. So goes Jasper's journey to discover if life has more to offer. If he has more to give. And how to find true happiness. Will he take a leap of faith to land firmly on the ground? With a combination of well-developed characters and a plot that puzzles until the last page, NTL tells the story of what lies at the intersection of what we do and don't believe in, what we can and can't control, and what happens when we choose to not let fate take the wheel.
