Law’s Political Foundations

Rivers, Rifles, Rice, and Religion

  • Elgar Studies in Legal Theory

John O. Haley

Law’s Political Foundations explains the development of the two basic systems of public and private law and their historical transformations. Examining the historical development of law in China, Japan, Western Europe, and Hispanic America, Haley argues that law is a product, rather than a constitutive element, of political systems.
