Summary
"Exploring the history and theory of constitutionalism in a comparative perspective this account is concerned not only with the mechanics of government, but more comprehensively with the organization of state-society relations. Drawing on some classic examples, such as the history and fundaments of the US constitution, the 1791 French constitution or the Weimar constitution, we are reminded that we can learn the most from earlier failures."--BOOK JACKET.
