Editorial Reviews


"Those acquiring this volume will catch a tantalizing glimpse of the power of Reid's exposition of the English common law ... recommended to anyone who really cares about the law."—Stephen B. Presser, Law and History Review

"Reid has returned to the field in which he made his reputation and delivered a real gem of a work.... Rule of Law illuminates key developments of the foundational legal idea."—Martin S. Flaherty, Fordham University Law School

"This is the sort of work we have come to expect and admire from John Phillip Reid. It is a richly sourced comparative study of a fundamental concept—rule of law—that has dozens of applications in today's world."
—James Oldham, Georgetown University
