Comparative Constitutional Law

The International Library of Comparative Law series

Edited by Mark Tushnet, William Nelson Cromwell Professor of Law, Harvard University, US

This authoritative three-volume set provides a carefully considered selection of the most important articles to guide research into comparative constitutional law. Topics covered include historical studies of public law in different nations, theoretical accounts of rights and structures, detailed examinations of particular features common to many constitutions, and comparisons between a significant number of domestic jurisdictions. Together with an original introduction by the editor, this comprehensive and timely research collection is an essential resource for academics and practitioners alike.

‘This collection offers ready access to a range of influential writings in comparative constitutional law from the past thirty years and will be welcomed by scholars working in the field. An extended introduction by the editor offers a new and valuable contribution to understanding of the substance and methods of comparative constitutional law in its own right.’
– Cheryl Saunders, University of Melbourne, Australia
