"Klug's book combines his knowledge as both an internal player and external scholar and the porduct is a nicely crafted examination that itself incorporates the global tenets of the academic community of rigorous scholarship and analysis with journalistic first hand investigation of the process. Any scholar of democratization processes, constitutionalism and the rule of law broadly will find this book of interest. Klug presents a compelling case for his argument that states no longer exist in isolation of the broader international community, but can successfully adapt global universals into local contexts."
