- 'The Public's Law' is a theory and history of democracy in the American administrative state. The text describes how American Progressive thinkers - such as John Dewey, W.E.B. Du Bois, and Woodrow Wilson - developed a democratic understanding of the state from their study of Hegelian political thought. G.W.F. Hegel understood the state as an institution that regulated society in the interest of freedom.
- Based on author's thesis (doctoral - Yale University, 2016) issued under title: Between public law and public sphere : reconstructing the American Progressive theory of the administrative state.
