New USIP volume on constitution-making

Those interested in constitutional design should take a look at the new volume from the US Institue of Peace, Framing the State in Times of Transition: Case Studies in Constitution Making. The volume features 19 case studies of constitution-making, including well-known cases like Afghanistan and Iraq, and more obscure cases ranging from Albania to Zimbabwe. Introductory chapters on the role of international law and the right to public participation, and a thorough analytic conclusion by editor Laurel Miller, bracket the volume. The volume is full of fascinating detail, and greatly expands our knowledge of constitutional design. Highly recommended!
