Republican legal theory developed out of the jurisprudential and constitutional legacy of the Roman ""res publica"" as interpreted over two millennia in Europe and North America. This book provides a comprehensive study of republican legal ideas and Professor Sellers traces the development of republican legal theory. Explaining the importance of popular sovereignty, the rule of law, the separation of powers and other essential republican legal characteristics, he argues that these republican institutions have introduced a new era of justice into politics.
