`Any serious reader should recognize the volume's rigor, sophistication, subtlety, and admirable ambitious sweep. It remains Raz's most impressive achievement ... the republication of Practical Reason and Norms ... is a welcome event. Anyone interested in legal or moral philosophy ... would be advised to pursue it.' Matthew H Kramer, Cambridge Law Journal
From the Inside Flap
"This book is a sophisticated contribution to modern analytical jurisprudence, providing an analysis of structures of reasons--particularly the idea of `exclusionary reasons'--which lays a basis for an account of normativity. Raz's book also builds on, criticizes, and develops thoroughly the idea of the `internal aspect' of rules in Hart's The Concept of Law. Anyone working in the area of jurisprudence, or in the analysis of norms and obligations generally, simply cannot proceed without taking into account Raz's ideas."--Jeremy Waldron, School of Law, University of California, Berkeley
