Finally, the latest book by distinguished scholar Günter Frankenberg: a unique account of the contemporary major themes in public theory of law. Simply: what we all have been waiting for years.

This timely volume offers a sophisticated analysis and sharp critique of the reactions of nations such as the US, Great Britain and Germany to perceived terrorist threats, organized crime actions and other political emergencies that have occurred in recent years.
