The Concept Of Law by H. L. A. Hart

This seminal work in legal philosophy offers a comprehensive analysis of the nature of law, articulating a sophisticated theory that emphasizes law as a system of social rules. It challenges earlier positivist and command theories of law, introducing the idea of the "rule of recognition" as a fundamental aspect by which a society accepts certain norms as legally binding. The book also explores the relationship between law and morality, the variety of legal systems, and the notion of legal rights, ultimately providing a framework for understanding the complex structure and functioning of legal institutions in modern societies.
