Overview

This book compares and contrasts several constitutional traditions from various regions of the world. The first chapter provides the foundation for norms, ideas, and values that frame this comparison. Western and Eastern concepts of law, the relationship of law and ideology, the common law and civil law systems, tribal law, property, rights and liberties, and other themes establish the basis for the remaining chapters of the book, which includes examinations of the American, British, Chinese, Canadian, Japanese, Indian, Nigerian, French, German, Saudi Arabian, and Mexican constitutional traditions within their legal and broader political contexts. This approach to comparative law at the constitutional level is the first one of its type, especially in terms of its diverse social science approach.
