Argues that Carl Schmitt's critique of Weimar Republic liberalism cannot be countered by reforming liberalism is also a contribution to current political theory and an analysis of contemporary liberalism Develops a compelling, rigorous argument that unsettles many assumptions about liberalism, democracy, and dictatorship Constitutional Failure is a major contribution to studies of the German political philosopher Carl Schmitt (1888 - 1985), the Weimar Republic, and the relationship of constitutionalism, political economy, and democracy.;An internationally renowned scholar of Weimar legal theory, Ellen Kennedy brought Schmitt's neglected work to the attention of English-speaking readers with her highly regarded translations of his work and studies of its place in twentieth-century political theory. In this eagerly awaited book, she tracks Schmitt's contribution to the canon of western political philosophy in its most difficult and dangerous moment - during the time of Weimar Germany and the Third Reich - and demonstrates the centrality of his thought to understandings of the modern constitutional state and its precarious economic and social foundations.
