International Review of Constitutionalism, Volume 9, Number 1, 2009 (Paperback): Penelope Andrews, Frank Munger International Review of Constitutionalism, Volume 9, Number 1, 2009 (Paperback)
Penelope Andrews, Frank Munger

Constitutionalism is usually regarded as the limitation of government power by a "fundamental" law, or set of laws, beyond the reach of individual governments to amend. Any thorough investigation of the concept, however, quickly shows how the constitutional law, to be operative, must be rooted in a political culture in which the abuse of power will not be tolerated. The concept is as much political and cultural as it is legal. The modern term derives from the imperial Latin constitutio, meaning "establishment," or ordinance, of the emperor. Its first characteristic is the establishment of law and order, and then the control of government power within that order. The exercise of power is as much a guarantee of freedom as is its control. Comprehensive treatments of constitutionalism as a central component of western political culture have been few in recent years. There are many recent discussions of the constitutional traditions of particular countries, as well as monographs and articles on specific aspects of constitutional theory. The International Review of Constitutionalism brings these developments together in one semi-anually review. Among the topics covered: * Constitutional models, concepts and practices * Constitutional framework for democratic representation * Constitutional rights of minorities * Constitutional rights and the diminishing state * The constitutional rights of non-citizens * Democracy and corruption * Religion and the state * Individual and collective equality rights, including affirmative Action * Rule of law, tat de droit and Rechtsstaat.

From Cape Town to Kabul - Rethinking Strategies for Pursuing Women's Human Rights (Hardcover, New Ed): Penelope Andrews From Cape Town to Kabul - Rethinking Strategies for Pursuing Women's Human Rights (Hardcover, New Ed)
Penelope Andrews

Using her experience of living under apartheid and witnessing its downfall and the subsequent creation of new governments in South Africa, the author examines and compares gender inequality in societies undergoing political and economic transformation. By applying this process of legal transformation as a paradigm, the author applies this model to Afghanistan. These two societies serve as counterpoints through which the book engages, in a nuanced and novel way, with the many broader issues that flow from the attempts in newly democratic societies to give effect to the promise of gender equality. Developing the idea of 'conditional interdependence', the book suggests a new approach based on the communitarian values which underpin newly democratic societies and would allow women's rights to gain momentum and reap greater benefits. Broad in its thematic approach, the book generates challenging and complex questions about the achievement of gender equality. It will be of interest to academics interested in gender and human rights, international and comparative law.

The Post-Apartheid Constitutions - Perspectives on South Africa's Basic Law (Paperback): Penelope Andrews The Post-Apartheid Constitutions - Perspectives on South Africa's Basic Law (Paperback)
Penelope Andrews; Contributions by Stephen Ellmann

In a book which offers a unique range of perspectives on the development of South Africa's Interim and final Constitutions, scholars, practising lawyers, members of the judiciary and the Human Rights Commission, and political leaders illuminate the many issues of process, substance and context presented by the Constitutions.
Essays on process make clear the challenges and the triumphs of South Africa's constitutional rebirth. The authors examine such questions as the extent of popular involvement in South Africa's exercise in constitution writing, the impact of political force, human transformation, and reasoned persuasion on the agreements that were reached, and the Constitutional Court's extraordinary role in assessing the negotiators' efforts.
Contributions on the substance of the Constitution address both its human rights provisions and issues of governmental structure and institutional context. The articles on rights attest to the breadth of the new rights protections, with essays on free speech, socio-economic rights and their application to private actors, women's rights, traditional authority, cultural rights, and the rights of non-citizens.
Chapters on structure and context reflect how important the institutions through which a government operates are to the actual implementation of the Constitution's aspirations. These wide-ranging pieces look at three of the newly created structures of South African government -- the federal aspects of the Constitutions, the Constitutional Court, and the Human Rights Commission -- and at the process of change in the criminal justice system, a particularly important institution carried over from an old order.
