Il'in, Ivan Aleksandrovich Butler, William E., Editor and Translator. Grier, Philip T., Editor and Translator Robinson, Paul, Editor and Translator. On the Essence of Legal Consciousness. Second Revised Edition. Clark, New Jersey: Talbot Publishing, 2023. x, 403 pp. ISBN-13: 9781616196790. ISBN-10: 1-616196793. Hardcover. New. $150. * A title in the Studies in Russian, East European, and Eurasian Law series. Il'in's classic work is the most impassioned and cogent work by a Russian jurist on the rule of law. The product of nearly four decades of labor, which could not be published in the former Soviet Union, this revised edition places the work in the context of developments since its first English translation in 2013. The text is accompanied by one of Il'in's early and influential articles on law and power, a bibliography devoted to his life and work, and informed introductory essays about his contribution to the rule of law dialogue, the origins and transformations of the concept of legal consciousness and the fascinating history of his treatise on that subject. Ivan Aleksandrovich Il'in [1883-1954], sometime professor, Moscow Lomonosov State University, is one of the most widely-read legal philosophers of the twentieth century in post-Soviet Russia. William E. Butler is the John Edward Fowler Distinguished Professor of Law, Penn State Dickinson Law; Emeritus Professor of Comparative Law, University College London; and author of numerous works on post-Soviet legal systems, including Russian Law and Legal Institutions (3d ed.; 2021). Philip T. Grier, who has written extensively on Hegel and Il'in and translated Il'in's principal treatise on Hegelianism, is the Emeritus Thomas Bowman Professor of Philosophy and Religion at Dickinson College, Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Paul Robinson is a professor at the University of Ottawa.
