Poole, Thomas (2007) Tilting at windmills?: truth and illusion in “The Political Constitution". Modern law review, 70 (2). pp. 250-277. ISSN 0026-7961
This article examines the constitutional scholarship of John Griffith. Centring on Griffith's seminal article ‘The Political Constitution’, the analysis reveals a more complex and pessimistic thinker than the standard image of Benthamite radical would allow. The article then examines the cogency of Griffith's vision – particularly his thesis that rights discourse ‘corrupts’ law and politics – against recent developments. It concludes by reflecting on Griffith's radical debunking style.
