“The original title ‘JURISTIC FR’NK’ST’N’ was changed. Most books have to have an excuse by someone for the Author, but this is the only book that has to have no alibi for the title, too. How to find the antiquity of the Constitution, from Constituent Assembly, to the Parliament, to the Courts for explication. One enters the profession, reflecting that our law is merely a facet of our civilization, about as multifarious, scrambled and altogether unsatisfactory, as our civilization itself and about as difficult to do anything effective about.
Confused conceptions of justice end up promoting injustice —confused conceptions of equality end up promoting inequality—and tyranny of social visions prevents many people from confronting the actual consequences of their own beliefs and policies. The author in this book, reflect a life-time of wide-ranging research and careful results and process between traditional justice and the rule of law. The ratio of insights to words in this book is remarkably high—once again displaying his distinctive combination of erudition, analytical power, and uncommon sense. The heady rush of rhetoric and visions are stuff of everyday politics and every day media discussions.”
