Book Details
Available on Amazon: 

This book is a rational defense of the common moral sense of plain people (which, paradoxically, is out of fashion). Although it wasn’t written as a textbook, it can serve as one. A new preface on the four ages of natural law puts the topic in historical context. Although the book is for scholars too, if you have no background in natural law, this is probably the best place to begin.
