The book focuses on the relationship between law and politics as perceived by the legal community and more specifically, the transformation of politics into law. After exploring the relationship between law and politics as considered by the major modern schools of legal theory, the focus moves to the regions of interaction in which law and politics meet, termed the "policy of law." The policy of law is characterized in this work as the stage of the law-making process at which values entrenched in political decisions are transformed into legal concepts in order to fit the existing legal system. The space labeled as policy of law is today mainly (but not exclusively) the domain of legal actors. Consequently, the identification of a branch of the legal discipline specifically devoted to the investigation of the transformations of values into law is given: the policy of law analysis. Finally, whether and to what extent the policy of law analysis can be encompassed within the traditional legal discipline and, more particularly, as a part of jurisprudence, is explored. "Zamboni ranges broadly and knowledgeably over vast areas of legal theory. But it is no mere taxonomising - his argument is valuable and original. It is clear, learned and never boring." [Zenon Bankowski, University of Edinburgh].

...THE POLICY OF LAW: A LEGAL THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK, at once builds on the impressive scholarship of [Zamboni's] intellectual forebears while at the same time offering new insight into a (surprisingly) understudied area of inquiry: the relationship between politics and law...The book is accessible to the sophisticated reader and will be particularly interesting to graduate students and advanced undergraduates who are curious about the ways in which different jurisprudential paradigms can be organized around political..dimensions...In seeking to narrow the scope of inquiry to just what the dominant legal theories have to say about the relationship between law and politics, Zamboni is broadening our understanding both of those foundational theories and of the connection between law and politics itself. As such, he has performed a real intellectual service for contemporary students of legal theory, all of whom should give this book a glance.
