Comparing Constitutions

Comparing Constitutions

by Bernard Rudden (Author), VernonBogdanor (Author), S.E.Finer (Author)


A political scientist and a comparative lawyer have joined forces to produce a revised and expanded version of the late S.E. Finer's classic Five Constitutions. Their book gives the present texts of four important constitutions, the American, German, French, and Russian. It adds the basic political structure of the European Union, and provides a full account of the British constitution in the terms revealed by examination of the other texts. A general chapter on comparing constitutions is complemented by careful analytical and alphabetical indexes.
