Reason of State: Law, Prerogative and Empire
This historically embedded treatment of theoretical debates about prerogative and reason of state spans over four centuries of constitutional development.
The book synthesises a wealth of theoretical and empirical literature that allows a link to be made between the development of constitutional ideas and global realpolitik. It exposes the relationship between internal and external pressures and designs in the making of the modern constitutional polity and explores the relationship between law, politics and economics in a way that remains rare in constitutional scholarship.
