This landmark volume of specially commissioned, original contributions by top international scholars organizes the issues and controversies of the rich and rapidly maturing field of comparative constitutional law. Divided into sections on constitutional design and redesign, identity, structure, individual rights and state duties, courts and constitutional interpretation, this comprehensive volume covers over 100 countries as well as a range of approaches to the boundaries of constitutional law. While some chapters reference the text of legal instruments expressly labeled constitutional, others focus on the idea of entrenchment or take a more functional approach. Challenging the current boundaries of the field, the contributors offer diverse perspectives - cultural, historical and institutional - as well as suggestions for future research. A unique and enlightening volume, Comparative Constitutional Law is an essential resource for students and scholars of the subject.

The vast majority of the global population acquires citizenship purely by accidental circumstances of birth. In The Birthright Lottery, Ayelet Shachar argues that birthright citizenship in an affluent society can be thought of as a form of property inheritance: that is, a valuable entitlement transmitted by law to a restricted group of recipients under conditions that perpetuate the transfer of this prerogative to their heirs.

This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. Over the last decade or so, concern about illegal immigration has sporadically led to a re-examination of a long-established tenet of U.S. citizenship, codified in the Citizenship Clause of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), that a person who is born in the U.S., is a citizen of the U.S. regardless of the race, ethnicity, or alienage of the parents. Some congressional Members have supported a revision of the Citizenship Clause or at least holding hearings for a serious consideration of it. Contents of this report: (1) Intro.; (2) Historical Development: Jus Soli Doctrine Before the 14th Amend.; The 14th Amend. and the Civil Rights Act of 1866; U.S. v. Wong Kim Ark and Elk v. Wilkins; (3) Legislative Proposals.

The use of history in law is a time honored tradition. Over the years the practice has assumed many forms, including historicism, intentionalism, interpretivist history, law office history, historical narrative, originalism, etc. This book picks up where past commentators have left off. The different historically based approaches to adjudicating constitutional questions are weighed and considered, particularly originalism, and asserts that history in law is legitimate only if it leads to accurate results. The book then purposes an approach to accomplish the objectives of historical accuracy and objectivity, and therefore legitimacy. "The past too easily becomes a political football, a pawn in contemporary political debates about law and history. Charles is keenly aware of the abuse of history by lawyers, but also the abuse of law by historians. History's 'dead hand,' Charles argues, should be invoked carefully and judiciously. To his credit, Charles's goal in this book is to improve the fraught dialogue between history and law."--Robert J. Spitzer, SUNY Cortland, author of Saving the Constitution from Lawyers and The Politics of Gun Control "A rich and searching account of how the past should shape the present that sheds new light on many of our generation's most challenging constitutional problems."--Gerard Magliocca, Samuel R. Rosen Professor of Law, Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law "In this thoughtful and ambitious book, Patrick Charles addresses some of the central questions in all of constitutional interpretation. Charles 'historical guideposts' approach simultaneously supports and challenges the positions of self-identified originalists and living constitutionalists alike. It represents a useful intervention in the ongoing debate between those camps."--Joseph Blocher, Associate Professor of Law, Duke University.

Immigration Stories

Immigration Stories brings together highly readable accounts, written by distinguished legal scholars, of 13 canonical cases that illustrate how immigration law is actually made. The authors illuminate the law's development by emphasizing the choices made (and foregone) before and during each of the litigations, including choices by immigrants and advocacy groups, private and government lawyers, Congress, the executive branch, and judges. These accounts are concerned less with legal doctrine than with the human dramas and tactical decisions that surround and give shape to that doctrine. Designed to bring the law to vivid life, this book is highly recommended as a supplement to the traditional immigration law casebook.
