Julian Scholtes, International Journal of Constitutional Law The book's strength - both as an accessible explanation and a passionate defense of liberal constitutionalism - is undeniable, and as such it deserves the attention of students of law and many a constitutional scholar alike.
Wen-Chen Chang, National Taiwan University Against the backdrop of democratic retrogression worldwide, this introductory book to legal constitutionalism makes a timely and significant contribution to the study of contemporary constitutions. With their deep understanding of liberal democratic constitutionalism, the authors rightly remind us that 'limiting majority rule in democracy helps democracy', and 'curbing majority sentiment serves objects which are at the core of constitutionalism'.
Stephen Holmes, Walter E. Meyer Professor of Law, New York University School of Law A brilliantly probing inquiry into the fragility of constitutionalism in an illiberal age. With enviable erudition and a delicious wit, Sajo and Uitz have mined the history of constitutional theory and practice to illuminate the challenges we face in struggling to preserve our threatened liberties today.
Jan-Werner Mueller, Professor, Department of Politics, Princeton University We live in an age of disillusionment with constitutionalism. This book is just right for that age: Sajo and Uitz provide a comprehensive defence of constitutionalist principles and practices that moves beyond the nave enthusiasm of the last two decades and that is deeply informed by comparisons of different legal experiences around the globe. In a unique way, they take seriously the new scepticism about constitutions as political panaceas and yet make a sound
case as to why they remain indispensable for enabling modern freedom.
