Scholars in the "Critical Legal Studies" movement have challenged some of the most cherished ideals of modern Western legal and political thought. CLS thinkers claim that the rule of law is a myth and that its defense by liberal thinkers is riddled with inconsistencies. This first book-length liberal reply to CLS systematically examines the philosophical underpinnings of the CLS movement and exposes the deficiencies in the major lines of CLS argument against liberalism.

Review:

"There are silly ways of criticizing works by CLS scholars, and there are intelligent ways. . . . An example of an intelligent critique is provided by this short but elegant book."--Wojciech Sadurski, Ethics

"A serious response to CLS proponents. . . . Anyone who teaches, writes, or researches in the area of jurisprudence or political philosophy would benefit from this book."--Jean Rendleman Kelley, Teaching Philosophy
