  • A Constitution for the Common Goodby W Elliot Bulmer

    Luath Press Ltd 2014;

    If Scotland has voted YES on 18 September, how can a written Constitution be good for the people of Scotland?

  • Understanding Statebuildingby Rebecca Richards

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 119.95

    Much analysis of state building focusses on dissecting specific projects and attempting to identify what has gone ‘wrong’ in states such as Afghanistan and Iraq. What draws less attention is what has gone ‘right’ in non-interventionist statebuilding projects within 'unrecognised’ states. By examining this model in more... more...

    Georgetown University Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    Conceived during the turbulent period of the late 1960s when ‘rights talk’ was ubiquitous, Federal Service and the Constitution, a landmark study first published in 1971, strove to understand how the rights of federal civil servants had become so differentiated from those of ordinary citizens. Now in a new, second edition, this legal-historical... more...

  • Constitutional Dialoguesby Louis Fisher

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 41.00

    Who makes constitutional law? Is constitutional doctrine the monopoly of the courts? In accessible and persuasive prose Louis Fisher explains that constitutional law is not solely or even primarily the Supreme Court's "final word" but rather a richly political convergence of separate interpretations. With a broad range of examples, he argues that... more...

  • The Meaning of More's Utopiaby George M. Logan

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 40.00

    Examining its relation to ancient and Renaissance political thought, George M. Logan sees Thomas More's Utopia whole, in all its ironic complexity. He finds that the book is not primarily a prescriptive work that restates the ideals of Christian humanism or warns against radical idealism, but an exploration of a particular method of political study... more...
