Modern civil justice is founded on convenience. This book is not on message. It gives priority to principle over expediency. This is a law book. I have set aside wider considerations of political or social scepticism about, or enthusiasm for, the human rights project. Of course, law reaches beyond itself. It can be only part of ourselves. This book is limited. It does not expressly touch our constitutional arrangements except where driven to by the Human Rights Act (1998). More importantly, it also avoids wider considerations of human rights philosophy, jurisprudence, of human equality and dignity or policy (including, social, economic and environmental).
