This work 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 areas as justice, the state, constitutionalism and rights. It introduces lawyers to certain important themes in some of the key texts of political thought (for example, Plato, Hobbes, Locke and Tocqueville) and introduces political scientists to the legal dimensions of a number of central themes of political studies. The book should be of interest to students and teachers in law and politics.
