This book is an examination of an important aspect of constitutional law: the creation and amendment of constitutions, which in addition to being of interest for practical reasons, brings us close to some of the most fundamental theoretical questions in law. It brings together a wealth of fascinating contributions to the study of comparative constitutional law, covering the constitutions of Commonwealth Africa, Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Ireland, Italy, Malaysia, Nigeria, Rwanda and Burundi, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America.

The contributions are of particular significance to the status of human rights and their legal recognition, as well as to theoretical comparative public law scholarship. The volume suggests in its final comparison of constitutional norms that perhaps constitutional amendments should be made difficult once a constitution has settled into its foundations.
