This volume contains a selection of essays drawn from a major scholarly project undertaken by the American Council of Learned Societies. The ACLS hosted symposia around the world in order to broaden and stimulate the field of comparative constitutionalism. That effort brought together scholars and political actors from many countries and every region of the world to discuss the experiences of constitutionalism. Twenty-five papers were selected to represent the range and depth of possibility for serious constitutional analysis. With the staggering changes in Eastern Europe and much of the rest of the world, constitutionalism has become one of the most important phenomena in the modern world. The essays in this book represent the very best work being done throughout the world on that important topic. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
