Getting to the Rule of Law

Excerpt

This volume of NOMOS—the fiftieth in the series—emerged from papers and commentaries given at the annual meeting of the American Society for Political and Legal Philosophy (ASPLP) in New Orleans on January 6, 2010, held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Association of American Law Schools. Our topic, “Getting to the Rule of Law,” was selected by the Society’s membership.

The conference consisted of three panels: (1) “Getting to the Concept of the Rule of Law”; (2) “Maintaining or Restoring the Rule of Law after September 11, 2001”; and (3) “Building the Rule of Law after Military Interventions.” This volume includes revised versions of the principal papers delivered at that conference by Jeremy Waldron, Benjamin A. Kleinerman, and Jane E. Stromseth. It also includes essays that developed out of the original commentaries on those papers by Curtis A. Bradley, Corey Brettschneider, Tom Ginsburg, Larry May, Lionel K. McPherson, and Robin West. The volume includes three additional essays (one related to each panel), by Martin Krygier, Sotirios A. Barber and me, and Richard W. Miller. I am grateful to all of these authors for the thoughtfulness of their contributions and for their expeditiousness in bringing this volume to press.

Thanks are also due to the editors and production team at New York University Press, particularly to Ilene Kalish, Despina Papazoglou Gimbel, and Aiden Amos. On my own behalf and on behalf of the Society, I wish to express deep gratitude for the Press’s ongoing support for the series and the tradition of interdisciplinary scholarship that it represents.

Finally, thanks to Natalie Logan and Eric Lee, my excellent research assistants at Boston University, and Danielle Amber Papa . . .
