Read all details Description This is the 12th Edition of this well-known classic, an established leader among standard textbooks on jurisprudence. Classic though it is however the new Salmond presents a thoroughly readable survey of contemporary jurisprudence. Aiming at a practical and common sense approach, the Editor has also brought to bear the latest techniques of modern analytical philosophy. The material dealing with legal theory has been completely rewritten in order to examine its scope more fully and to give better insights into the purpose of investigations in jurisprudence. The main theories of law are fully discussed and, in particular, definitions of law, other than those propounded by Salmond himself, are investigated. Much of the text dealing with particular legal concepts has been altered to take account of recent work, and these concepts are examined against the background of ordinary linguistic usage and with the aid of modern methods. In order to make room for the development of the book described above, some of the original text has been omitted, but where Salmond's own views are of special interest or importance they have been retained or referred to. Throughout the Editor has concentrated on essentials, avoided excessive detail, and aimed to provide a textbook which is not too difficult but which fully accepts the challenge of approaching this subject in the light of recent developments.

John William Salmond's contributions to many branches of the law in New Zealand, together with his international eminence as a legal theorist, entitle him to be regarded as New Zealand's most eminent jurist.

The family migrated to Dunedin, New Zealand, in on the Corona, and William began a long career as a teacher of theology and moral philosophy. He obtained the degree of LLB and became a fellow of his college, then returned to New Zealand in In Salmond offered his services 'with or without salary' as a teacher of law to the University of Otago.

Although this was at first declined, Salmond was eventually appointed to a lectureship in constitutional law for In Salmond entered legal practice in Temuka. On 28 August that year he married, in Dunedin, Anne Bryham Guthrie, whom he had met in London; they were to have two sons and a daughter.

Between and Salmond carried on a varied country legal practice. He appears to have been a popular and sought-after lawyer, and conducted many successful cases.

It was in Temuka, too, that Salmond wrote two short but seminal books, Essays in jurisprudence and legal history and The first principles of jurisprudence In these he criticised the then-dominant theory of John Austin, to which he had been exposed while in England; according to this the essential feature of law is the ability of a 'political superior' to enforce obedience to its commands by the threat or fact of sanctions.

Although Salmond criticised the Austinian model for its failure to account for non-coercive and ethical functions of law, he adopted its definitional rigour. In Salmond was appointed professor of law at the University of Adelaide in South Australia, a post he was to occupy until This period saw the publication of Jurisprudence: or the theory of the law Apart from the lucid account of the legal system that successive editions of this work were to provide for generations of law students in the English-speaking world, the book developed influential concepts that subsequent writers on legal theory were to adopt.

In particular, Salmond analysed rights by distinguishing four different kinds of advantage that law might confer: 'liberty, when the law allows to my will a sphere of unrestrained activity; power, when the law actively assists me in making my will effective as against others; right, in the strict sense, when the law limits the liberty of others in my behalf; immunity, when the law in my behalf refuses power to others to be used against me.

For example, the rule that acts of Parliament have the force of law could not itself be based on an act of Parliament. In Salmond was approached by New Zealand's chief justice, Sir Robert Stout, who suggested he should accept appointment to the founding chair of law at Victoria College in Wellington. During his short occupation of the chair Salmond was highly regarded by students, one of whom recalled that 'the lucidity, the grasp, the wit, the kindliness, and the all-embracing scholarship of the man acted with tonic effect upon his students'.

He also received groups of students at his home or in his office for more informal discussions. Both at Victoria and Adelaide, a facility for retaining a deadpan expression while students laughed at some droll expression was mistakenly taken for humourlessness.

In fact he was able to see humour in most things. In Salmond published The law of torts, in which he arranged much heterogeneous material under a set of principles.

The book appeared in its 27th edition in
