Elgar Advanced Introductions are stimulating and thoughtful introductions to major fields in the social sciences and law, expertly written by some of the world's leading scholars. Designed to be accessible yet rigorous, they offer concise and lucid surveys of the substantive and policy issues associated with discrete subject areas.

Mark Tushnet, a world-renowned scholar of constitutional law, presents an introduction to comparative constitutional law through an analysis of topics at the cutting edge of contemporary scholarship. This authoritative study investigates constitution making, including the problem of unconstitutional constitutional amendments; recent developments in forms of constitutional review, including 'the battle of the courts'; proportionality analysis and its alternatives; and the emergence of a new 'transparency' branch in constitutions around the world. Throughout, the book draws upon examples from a wide range of nations, demonstrating that the field of comparative constitutional law now truly encompasses the world.

Presenting a unique position on key issues about constitutional design and structure, this timely introduction will serve as an excellent resource for students and scholars of comparative constitutional law. Political scientists interested in comparative politics will also find the book a useful point of entry to this fascinating field of study.
