The beauty of Constitutional Identity derives both from the lucidity of Jacobsohn's arguments and the cogency of his examples. Drawing primarily from cases arising before high courts in India, Ireland, Israel, South Africa, Turkey, and the U.S., it draws upon written opinions, interviews with judges, and a staggering range of secondary sources (perhaps a third of the book is footnotes). If the problems producing constitutional disharmonies are diverse, the legal and philosophical struggle to discover the core identities of the systems being studied and reconcile "the actual and the ideal provided for in a constitutional document" is remarkably universal.
— E. V. Schneier
