Through this unique analytical framework of human rights, you’ll understand constitutional logic better than the average lawyer, with figures and tables throughout the book to provide an accessible, visual perspective.
What should our minimum expectations be while paying taxes? What should our minimum expectations be of democratic societies? Can democracies go bad?
