Laying Down The Law
The American Legal Revolutions In Occupied Germany And Japan
de R. W. Kostal
Sobre o livro
After WWII, US leaders sought to create liberal rule-of-law regimes in Germany and Japan, but the effort was often unsuccessful. R. W. Kostal argues that the manifest failings of America's own rule-of-law democracy were partially to blame, weakening US credibility and resolve and revealing the country's ambiguous status as a global moral authority.
