520    This book analyses in depth the distinctively Scottish 
       themes in the work of Sir Neil MacCormick, the world-
       renowned legal philosopher and prominent Scottish public 
       intellectual who died in 2009 after holding the Regius 
       Chair in Public Law and the Law of Nature and Nations at 
       Edinburgh University for 36 years. MacCormick's work, and 
       works about MacCormick, attract both a domestic and an 
       international audience. Readers will gain an understanding
       of how MacCormick's Scottish roots, interests and 
       commitments coloured his work - both his distinctively 
       Scottish writings and the overall intellectual outlook 
       that informed his broader legal and philosophical 
       writings. The book provides a well rounded appreciation of
       the Scottish dimension in MacCormick's thinking and 
       writing. It focuses on a number of prominent Scottish 
       themes in MacCormick's work and life and is structured 
       around four key themes: 1) the nature and identity of a 
       legal system; 2) sovereignty, European integration and 
       Scottish independence; 3) the legacy of the legal and 
       political thought of the Scottish enlightenment; and 4) 
       the role of the academic in the Scottish public sphere. 
       Key Features:* Edited by Neil Walker - a highly respected 
       scholar and thinker, and a prolific writer who has edited 
       many excellent collections of essays.* The editor 
       succeeded MacCormick in the Regius Chair and all of the 
       contributors are closely acquainted with MacCormick the 
       man and the scholar.* The first book to examine MacCormick
       through a distinctly Scottish lens.
