Sources of Constitutional Law contains a selection of constitutions and fundamental legislative instruments from five Western democracies: the United States, France, Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. In addition, it provides the text of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union. The instruments reproduced in this volume are rendered either in the original English, in the official English version, or in new translations under critical editorship. Sources of Constitutional Law allows students of constitutional law to understand the peculiarities and similarities of different Western constitutions in direct comparison. With its selection of constitutions and legislative instruments, this volume is the ideal companion to the textbook Constitutions Compared (click here for more information).
