Th is book is a collection of essays with four main themes. Th e fi rst is
criticism of the theory known as ‘common law constitutionalism’, which
holds either that Parliament is not sovereign because its authority is subordinate
to fundamental common law principles such as ‘the Rule of Law’,
or that its sovereignty is a creature of judge-made common law, which
the judges have authority to modify or repudiate ( Chapters 2 , 3 , 4 and
One of America’s greatest judges famously observed that ‘taxes are what
we pay for civilised society’, 1 and from the earliest times English men
and women were called on to pay for the costs of managing the state in
an orderly way, providing an infrastructure of good government and
defence. 2 As the eff ective government of a state depended to a great extent
on the condition of its fi nances, the state’s power to tax its subjects was
central to its relationship with them, and the law of tax its principal and
voluminous formal expression....
Naming refers to the process of assigning a name to something.
Naming may also be used to mean:
Naming (parliamentary procedure), a procedure in the British House of Commons
Naming ceremony, an event at which an infant is named
Product naming, the discipline of deciding what a product will be called
The period saw wars and peasant rebellions from Ireland in the West to Hungary in the East,
either in support of the authority of Rome and its loyal monarchs and priests or in direct
opposition to this authority. Thus, protestant England beginning with Henry VIII became the
mortal enemy of Catholic Spain, only to find itself in a religiously configured Civil war
between the protestant republicans of the parliamentary forces and the supporters of...
The aims of this edition remain the same as those of previous editions: namely,
to explain and discuss critically the general principles of the constitutional
law and administrative law of the UK and to identify their historical and
political foundations. This edition has been recast and substantially rewritten
and expanded in order to take account of major changes in the law, notably
the burgeoning case law generated by the Human Rights Act 1998, and to
consider recent scholarship and political developments.
This landmark book has long been the gold standard of concise summaries of important U.S. Supreme Court cases in U.S. constitutional law. The book incorporates every facet of constitutional law, including the powers and privileges of the three branches of the national government, federalism, war powers, and extensive briefs on civil rights and liberties. This new edition has been thoroughly revised, reorganized, and updated through the end of the 2008 term.
This is a short book, but it took a long time to write. In two previous books, Beyond
All Reason and Desperately Seeking Certainty, we criticized some currently popular
theories like originalism, the view (held by many conservative constitutional
scholars) that the Constitution’s meaning is fi xed by the history of its creation.
We also criticized theories of leading scholars at the other end of the ideological
This volume is a “reader”––a companion set of materials to be used (in
whole or in part) in conjunction with basic U.S. constitutional law books
and classes. The project was prompted by our sense that the leading U.S.
constitutional law casebooks (including the two with which we are individually
involved) do not contain much in the way of foreign or comparative
source materials that might assist students to understand better the distinct
legal, cultural, and historical premises that lie beneath––and the resulting
choices that are made by––U.S.
The report describes the environmental status of the water bodies in
2004 as well as the trend in environmental quality over the period
1989–2004 in relation to changes in the pressures. In addition it de-
scribes the monitoring of terrestrial natural habitats and species, in-
cluding the first results of this monitoring, which was initiated in
To my great surprise, the publishers inform me that the first edition of my modest study on the Panama Canal conflict between Great Britain and the United States is already out of print and that a second edition is at once required. As this study had been written before the diplomatic correspondence in the matter was available, the idea is tempting now to re-write the essay taking into account the arguments proffered in Sir Edward Grey's despatch to the British Ambassador at Washington of November 14, 1912—see Parliamentary Paper Cd.
Is the rule of law optional for liberal democratic societies? In the wake of
the attacks on the United States on 11 September 2001, the Bush administration
seemed to say that it is. And in the wake of the attacks on London
in July of 2005, Tony Blair has indicated that the rule of law is a luxury,
dispensable when the going gets rough.
We have often come across students who have a sound grasp of legal
principles and have put in quite a lot of work on constitutional law and yet
do not feel confident when faced with the end of year examination. This book
is written in response to the pleas of such students for more guidance as to
the best means of presenting their knowledge in the exam, and it is hoped
that it may alleviate at least some of the stress they experience.
