Jurisprudence in the years between Austin and Hart was, according to Duxbury, “a onehouse town” (Duxbury 2005, 29). J. V. E. Holland’s Elements of Jurisprudence (1924; first published 1880). It is doubtful that Austin’s ponderous work was much read, but Holland’s book, an accessible statement of core Austinian themes, and others like it, secured the dominance of Austinian thought in English jurisprudence, and through the influential work of Dicey, Austinian ideas came likewise to dominate constitutional theory of the English Commonwealth.

Thus, there is, in Salmond’s view, a fundamental difference between judgemade law—judicial decisions which, in virtue of a doctrine of stare decisis, have legislative effect—and the judicial practice of recognition that underlies the law in each legal system. L. Parker, editor of the 9th edition of Salmond’s Jurisprudence, points out that Roscoe Pound criticized both Salmond and Gray on this ground (1937 49f, 202–3).
