This book is one of the few studies of how the rule of law has fared in a developing country since it achieved independence. The travails of the rule of law are related,intertwined with the problems of nation building in a multi-racial country.

It provides a gripping account of the subversion of democracy, political pressures on the judiciary, the submissiveness of the judiciary, the quest for the adaptation of the law in non-political areas, a depressing failure to protect fundamental human rights, and a quest to build a distinctive Guyanese jurisprudence in the midst of all of these difficulties.
