CONSTITUTIONS COMPARED - AN INTRODUCTION TO COMPARATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL LAW, SECOND EDITION, Chapter 2, pp. 13-46, Antwerp/Oxford/Portland: Intersentia, 2009
This book chapter from the second edition of "Constitutions Compared" (Intersentia 2009) provides a general introduction to the area of comparative constitutional law in general, and the constitutional law of five systems in particular: the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom, France and the Netherlands. The chapter applies the same format as the other chapters in the volume: for each aspect of constitutional law, a general introduction and a comparative overview is provided, which is then followed by more detailed country chapters on that specific aspect. The book is intended for undergraduate-level introductions to comparative constitutional law, and as a solid foundation for more advanced courses.
