Whether one is interested in classic common law reasoning, statutory interpretation, or my own specialty, constitutional interpretation, there is much to savor in this slim book. But, of course, commands issued by an all-powerful Hobbesian sovereign could serve this role.

This is a very interesting book, one I would never have read if not suggested for a class. It is primarily a textbook, but anyone could enjoy it and benefit from the explanations and logic presented. It is challenging, but that is the pleasure of the book.

Authors Carter and Burke create a brief but effective legal analysis tool in the form of their text, "Reason in Law."

By examining the relationship between the law and politics, the text asks that students attempt to become "thoughtful judges of judging" while becoming familiar with and trying to answer the ultimate issue, that being: "how can a pluralistic society be ruled legitimately if people of differing political allegiances can interpret the same legal text quite differently, . . . then how can the rule of law be properly applied?"

I have required this text for my Constitutional Law course students, and must caution the potential buyer that an understanding of civics must be possessed before the book can be read and understood in light of it's full spectrum.

Packed with current events, cases and controversies pulled right from the headlines of the newspapers, this text is compatible with any political science or legal curriculum. Illustrative cases and questions complete and summarize each chapter thus creating tools for the student to use so as to grasp the legal concepts, meanings, and interactions of law and the contemporary legal process.

Informative and thought provoking. Four stars.
