In the last half-century, the rule of law has growingly been appealed to as a common global value. The Handbook on the Rule of Law (PDF) analyses the attraction of this idea, its context, and background through a range of questions about the history, character, and global reach of the rule of law, providing readers a definitive understanding of this central global norm.
Original contributions from prominent academics explore the rule of law conceptually and historically through its associated institutions, and also examine detailed cases evaluating how the everyday application of the rule of law influences society as a whole. Examining a wide range of research on the political, social, and economic dimensions of the rule of law, this Handbook on the Rule of Law clearly shows the link between the rule of law and the global political system.
This helpful Handbook will be key reading for postgraduate students of international relations, law, and global politics, as well as for legal scholars wanting to build upon their knowledge with a broad account of the rule of law. Researchers in areas influenced by the rule of law will also find this volume to be stimulating reading.
