Abstract:     
Republicanism has had an ambiguous relationship with both democracy and constitutionalism. This chapter explores these relations to argue that a) republicanism is incompatible with a legal consitution and judicial review and b) that is favours competitive party democracy and majority rule on the grounds that these promote both political equality and a balance of power that guard against domination.
