Johan van der Walt has bestowed upon the South African legal academy an immense gift. In Law and Sacrifice he has demonstrated that more can be expected from South African legal academics than mere restatements of the law, the all too common 'they-do, we-do' piece of comparative jurisprudence, or even the rare article that sheds new light on well-trodden terrain. He has demonstrated that we are - or some of us are - capable of erudite and extended engagement with a complex body of theory. For that gift, we owe Professor Van der Walt our gratitude.
