Prescriptive Legal Positivism by Tom Campbell

Book Description

Tom Campbell is well known for his distinctive contributions to legal and political philosophy over three decades. In emphasizing the moral and political importance of taking a positivist approach to law and rights, he has challenged current academic orthodoxies and made a powerful case for regaining and retaining democratic control over the content and development of human rights. This collection of his essays reaches back to his pioneering work on socialist rights in the 1980s and forward from his seminal book, The Legal Theory of Ethical Positivism (1996). An introductory essay provides an historical overview of Professor Campbell's work and argues for the continuing importance of 'democratic positivism' at a time when it is again becoming clear that courts are ineffective protectors of human rights.

Left and Rights Routledge Library Editions: Political Science Volume 50 by Tom Campbell Left and Rights Routledge Library Editions: Political Science Volume 50, Paperback (July 2012)

The author outlines an analysis of fundamental human rights compatible with historical relativism and applies this to the political right of freedom of expression and the economic right to work. Finally he deploys the proposed analysis of socialist rights to explain the ambivalence of socialist thinkers towards welfare rights.

Fold by Tom Campbell Fold, Paperback (July 2012)

Bitingly funny, glitteringly dark and bursting with humanity, Fold is a tale of friendship and rivalry, of jokers and kings, and of learning that it's not the hand life deals you, but what you do with it, that counts
