Quick Overview

Incisively and stylishly written, this book constitutes an open challenge to reconsider the fundamental question of the relationship of law to society.
``An excellent study ...(The author) presents a skillful analysis and criticism of what legal scholar-philosophers ... have written ... She offers more intellectual excitement than can be found in textbooks.``
- American Political Science Review

From the book-
On international political trials:
``The Nuremberg Trial of 1945 was not remarkable only because it was something entirely new in the history of international law. For persons of liberal convictions and a strong commitment to legalistic politics it was a genuine moral crisis ... The argument suggested here is that as far as the Trial concerned itself with crimes against humanity it was both necessary and wise.``

On domestic political trials:
``The political trial, the trail of elimination, can only be a destructive device in countries where liberal constitutional politics prevail. It is the enlistment of the judiciary in the ranks of a persecuting order ... that is damaging. Nothing can be gained by abandoning the principle of legality in criminal cases, for here the stictest legalism ... supports and reinforces constitutional government and personal freedom.``

Judith N. Shklar was John Cowles Professor of Government, Harvard University, and a MacArthur Fellow.
