"'The rule of law' is a phrase much used but little examined. In this brilliant book, Britain's former senior law lord, and one of the most acute legal minds of our time, examines what the idea actually means. He makes clear that is is not an arid legal doctrine but the foundation of a fair and just society, a guarantee of responsible government, and an important contributor to economic growth. Tom Bingham examines the historical origins of the rule of law, advances eight conditions which capture its essence as understood in Western democracies today - and explains why the rule offers the best means yet devised for securing peace and cooperation." -- back cover.
