Constitutional conventions precede law and make law making possible, but attempting to define them is politically risky yet increasingly necessary.

Reviews

'... the scope and terrain of the material covered in the book is impressive (for example, the caretaker conventions chapter) and should provide a useful steer to further research using other cases across the subject terrains discussed (as well as possibly some that are not discussed such as conventions and courts).'
