The following is a work in progress and will be Chapter 2 of a book entitled “The Rule of Law, Economic Development, & Corporate Governance.” The first chapter will be an introduction to the major ideas and themes of the book. This chapter explains the Anglophile Rule of Law and its history. The next chapter will explain the civilian version, termed the Rule through Law and its history. The Rule of Law is part of the Anglo-American liberty narrative, while the Rule through Law is part of the equality narrative. Chapters that follow will focus on how the two different concepts effect Economic Development and Corporate Governance and what this means for developing effective policies in different cultural environments. The work will be aimed at a multi-disciplinary audience.
