Summary
Is a constitution the best device for ruling a country? Western political systems tend to be ‘constitutional democracies’, dividing the system into a domain of politics, where the people rule, and a domain of law, set aside for a trained elite. Antoni Abat i Ninet strives to resolve these apparently exclusive public and legal sovereignties, using their various avatars across the globe as case studies. He challenges the American constitutional experience that has dominated western constitutional thought as a quasi-religious doctrine. And he argues that human rights and democracy must strive to deactivate the ‘invisible’ but very real violence embedded in our seemingly sacrosanct constitutions.--
