Promotional Information

This book addresses key issues in contemporary theory, including the nature of interpretation of bills of rights and the legitimacy and justification of judicial review.


"...An eclectic array of writing with transnational panache....Huscroft has done a fine job of collecting interesting essays. The book presents a politically and philosophically balanced view of constitutional theory....The essays are fairly accessible....Huscroft's introduction helps weave the patchwork of essays together....Altogether, the book is a good read, and is recommended for those interested in constitutional theory and interpretation, judicial review, and legal philosophy." --Adam Shajnfeld (J.D., Columbia), The Law and Politics Book Review
