'This volume enables readers to glimpse constitutional theory and practice around the globe. In brief essays (organized around the themes of constitutionalism, government structures, and various forms of rights), the authors address both longstanding and new problems addressed by constitutional orders. Moreover, rather than country-by-country comparisons, this Handbook focuses on the ideas and values that animate constitutional design; examples work in service of a subject matter, rather than as end unto themselves. As a consequence, this Handbook invites readers to reflect on the aspirations that constitutions embody and the challenges that they face.' Judith Resnik, Arthur Liman Professor of Law, Yale Law School, USA
