Deborah Z. Cass, Reader in Law, London School of Economics and Political Science
"'Deborah Cass has achieved that rare thing: An account which is sophisticated at both a theoretical and a doctrinal level. Her book will be a benchmark for all future writing on this theme.'" - Joanne Scott, University of Cambridge
"'This extraordinary book probes the frontier of international economic law'" - From the Preface by Professor John Jackson, Georgetown University, Washington, D.C.
"'Can or should global governance be guided by constitutional ideals and aspirations? What does democracy mean beyond the nation-state? Cass's book addresses these crucial issues by a careful examination of the
debate over the legitimacy of the World Trade Organization. A fine legal scholar whose analysis is grounded in doctrine and jurisprudence but who also has very good interdisciplinary intuitions, Cass builds important bridges between political philosophy and international law. Even those who disagree with her conclusions about democracy and global constitutionalism will find that this work clarifies and enriches their own thinking.'" - Professor Robert Howse, University of Michigan
