Providing definitions and historical background for more than three hundred key concepts and words, The Illustrated Dictionary of Constitutional Concepts is the first comprehensive reference to terms used around the world. The book also shows, with excerpts, how these concepts and terms are implemented in their respective constitutions. This timely resource also provides biographical profiles of some fifty people - philosophers as well as national leaders - whose ideas and actions have helped form constitutions worldwide. The Illustrated Dictionary of Constitutional Concepts is lavishly illustrated with over 280 blacka and white photos and illustrations of various concepts, people and places throughout the world. The volume include explanations of words and terms that appear in constitutions or are reflected in the structure of governments, from the ancient Greeks to the present day. Each term is placed in its historical perspectiveand, where relevant, its etymology is given. To illustrate how they are used, appropriate excerpts from current national constitutions are provided at the end of each entry.
