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. Contents I. Law and Politics in the Conversation of Mankind II. Justice III. The State IV. Constitutionalism V. Conclusions
