The Limits of Constitutional Democracy

Thu, December 2, 2010

What are the possibilities for constitutional democracy in the best conditions?

Can constitutional democracy contend with emergencies?

Can a constitutional democracy conduct war effectively and remain a constitutional democracy?

Can constitutional democracy cope with global interdependence?

Is the stability of a constitution an indicator of success or an indicator of a mentally inert citizenry not capable of reflection and debate?

These are some of the poignant questions tackled in a new volume edited by Jeffrey Tulis and Stephen Macedo, "The Limits of Constitutional Democracy."
