Information about project
Book title (and edition): Jurisprudence Theory and Context, Eighth Edition
Author: Brian H. Bix
Publisher: Carolina Academic Press
This book is a must-read for judges, lawyers, practitioners, policymakers, political and legal theorists. However, the primary target audience of this book are students of legal and political studies.
The book’s main virtue is that it brings the fresh Anglo-American perspective on jurisprudence and political theory to the reader’s table in a comprehensible language, making it suitable even for nonprofessionals. It is also modern in that it also comprises the analysis of economics and law and feminist theory of jurisprudence.
Translation project is necessarily based on the conviction that sound theoretical underpinnings are indispensable for the efficient, success-oriented, and forward-looking practical enterprise. Theory and practice complement, and none of them is full without each other. The theoretical input this book provides for constitutes invaluable theoretical and practical appraisal of how rule of law, law, and politics in general and concrete decisions taken on the level of public decision-making should seek the equilibrium to get the best possible result for the society protecting the overall good on the one hand, and the rights and freedom of affected stakeholders on the other. This will be extremely useful and beneficial at all places where the law is taught, especially at the undergraduate and MA levels.

Scientific Editor will be: Prof. Dr. Giorgi Tavadze, Head of the Varlam Cherkezishvili Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies, East European University
