“The Autonomy Of The Law Is Not Inconsistent With Tyranny:” Leo Panitch and Sam Gindin, David Graeber

“Tyranny- defined as the exercise of state power in the private interest.”
Graeber, David: Toward An Anthropological Theory of Value. New York: Palsgrave 2001


“…the autonomy of the law, which is necessary to its legitimacy, is not inconsistent with serving the needs of political and economic power.”

Dezalay and Garth, Dealing In Virtue, pp98. Cited in Leo Panitch and Sam Gindin: The Making Of Global Capitalism: The Political Economy Of American Empire, London, Verso 2012.

Both books are excellent.
