Readership: Constitutional lawyers, comparative lawyers, political theorists and historians.
Edited by Jeffrey Goldsworthy, Professor of Law, Monash University
"The book is a success. The essays are largely coherent in both structure and vocabulary; the authors manage to insert distinct perspectives while keeping to their organizational discipline; and the essays support readers in generating ideas for new research directions. Although the book focuses on questions of constitutional interpretation, the comparative orientation and the scope of constitutional questions that each essay addresses will make it a valuable reference for political scientists and political theorists, not just lawyers. The book will prove especially useful to graduate students or researchers contemplating a shift in their primary research direction." - Mariah Zeisberg, The Law and Politics Book Review (Vol. 16, No.
