The Canadian and American Constitutions in Comparative Perspective

Synopsis

Spanning over two centuries of constitutional developments in the United States & Canada, this comprehensive collection of essays brings together the provocative writings of prominent political scientists & jurists from both countries on the historical origins, ideology, function & political determinants of the two working constitutional systems. The book's lively & clear analysis summarises the intricate details of constitutional politics in a way that will help readers to face up to the historical choices that now confront us. Policies that have dominated public debate in recent years are examined under four broad headings: federalism, church-state relations, the politics of rights & the role of judges in formulating public policy. Addressed both to students of law, history & political science & to all who are concerned about their constitutional future, these essays examine issues that have led to profound changes in the lives of ordinary citizens in both countries.
