About Sword and Scales

This short and accessible book provides a provocative re-assessment of the various tangled relationships between law and politics and in so doing examines legal and political thinking on such critical areas as justice,the state, constitutionalism and rights. It introduces lawyers especially to certain important themes in some of the key texts in political thought and introduces political scientists to the legal dimensions of a number of central themes of political studies. Written by one of the leading theorists in constitutional law, the book should prove to be an indispensable companion for any student or teacher interested in law and politics.

Reviews

“This book should be an indispensable companion for any student or teacher interested in law and politics, as it introduces the reader to the political dimension of legal notions and as it analyses the legal dimension of a number of central themes of political studies.” –  Chr. Zarari, European Review of Public Law

“...analyses, which he carries through with elegance and erudition...Sword and Scales elegantly and convincingly demonstrates that to view law and politics in terms of such a simple antithesis is both misleading and sterile.” –  Terence Daintith, Public Law Review
