Book Chapter

Donald P. Kommers & W. J. Thompson, Fundamentals in the Liberal Constitutional Tradition, in Constitutional Policy and Change in Europe 23 (Joachim Jens Hesse & Nevil Johnson eds., 1995).

During recent years, constitutional issues have claimed increasing attention in many European countries. The social and political transformations in Central and Eastern Europe have thrust constitutional debates to the fore. This book looks at the needs and claims of constitutional adaptation and reconstruction in contemporary Europe. It explores the range and complexity of the constitutional challenge in Europe, which differs markedly from one country to another. It considers the different tasks facing Western, Central, and Eastern Europe, and addresses some of the issues of political theory presented by the notion of liberal constitutionalism itself. It will be of great interest to scholars of constitutional law and European politics.
