The Rule of Law and the Separation of Powers

As a result, when we think of the separation of powers today, we think of separations among these branches of the state – the legislature, the executive, and the judiciary. Yet equally important in the history of the separation of ...

The rule of law is frequently invoked in political debate, yet rarely defined with any precision. Some employ it as a synonym for democracy, others for the subordination of the legislature to a written constitution and its judicial guardians. It has been seen as obedience to the duly-recognised government, a form of governing through formal and general rule-like laws and the rule of principle. Given this diversity of view, it is perhaps unsurprising that certain scholars have regarded the concept as no more than a self-congratulatory rhetorical device. This collection of eighteen key essays from jurists, political theorists and public law political scientists, aims to explore the role law plays in the political system. The introduction evaluates their arguments. The first eleven essays identify the standard features associated with the rule of law. These are held to derive less from any characteristics of law per se than from a style of legislating and judging that gives equal consideration to all citizens. The next seven essays then explore how different ways of separating and dispersing power contribute to this democratic style of rule by forcing politicians and judges alike to treat people as equals and regard none as above the law.

Discontinuation of conjugal and family life is a very serious matter that affects not only the interpersonal relationship between the spouses and the well-being of their children but also the common good of society as a whole. Complex and sensitive questions concerning many couples, whose common conjugal life has somehow ended, call for theological, canonical and pastoral study. This dissertation attempts a partial response to that call as well as a small contribution to understanding of the Church's present legislation on the separation of spouses. The novelty of the work lies in its presentation of the many facets of the theme and its theological, anthropological, historical, substantive and procedural canonical elements.

This book concentrates on the more recent methods and techniques for separating food components and products of the biotechnology industry. Each chapter deals with a specific type or area of application and includes information on the basic principles, industrial equipment available, commercial applications, and an overview of current research and development. Much of the emphasis is on extraction of macromolecules, increasing the added value of foods and recovering valuable components from by-products and fermentation media. Many of the methods discussed are now in commercial practice, while others are being vigorously researched. Separation and filtration technology is of major importance in food processing and biotechnology. This book provides a very detailed examination of the most important, advanced separation processes now in use.
