Julius Stone: A Study in Influence


"The issues which occupied Julius Stone are still of profound importance and interest to judges and practitioners, solicitors and law teachers. The context changes, but the problems remain. ... this collection is an appropriate recognition of his continuing influence" -- Murray Gleeson AC

Scholars from Australia and overseas explore the striking and continuing influence of Julius Stone to legal theory and international law. They introduce new work in the fields in which Stone was both a pioneer and a leader, celebrate his life and acknowledge his impact on generations of Australian lawyers.
