Law and Society in a Populist Age : Balancing Individual Rights and the Common Good Paperback / softback
Amitai Etzioni, one of the most respected thinkers in the US, argues for a new liberal communitarian approach as an effective response to populism.
This recognizes that different members of the society have differing values, interests, and needs that cannot be fully reconciled to legislation in a populist age. The book considers the core challenges in contexts including national security versus privacy, private sector responsibility, freedom of the press, campaign finance reform, regulatory law and the legal status of terrorists.
It offers a timely discussion of the relationship of the law to the citizen in a fast-changing environment.
