This volume presents a host of legal policy problems in diverse political and cultural settings throughout the world, including China, Japan, South Africa, the USA, Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, and others. Contributors bridge the academic gulf between worldwide and public policy studies, as well as the ideological gap between liberal and conservative attitudes toward constitutional law, individual liberty, public safety, and human rights.
