Brief Bio:
  Professor Wilson came to Cleveland-Marshall after years of experience in Legal Services.  He is primarily interested in the role of private power in the contemporary political economy.  An early example is his article, Noam Chomsky and Judicial Review, published in the Cleveland State Law Review.  He is currently writing the first of a series of books using such thinkers as Plato, Socrates, the Buddha, and Machiavelli to demonstrate how far the current culture has deviated from traditional wisdom.

His book, The Imperial Republic, explores the impact of imperial ambition on early constitutional thought, politics, and law.
