Global Perspectives on Constitutional Law by Vikram David Amar and Mark V. Tushnet pdf download. 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. constitutional law and doctrine; such an understanding is particularly valuable for today’s students.

In a sense, all existing U.S. constitutional law courses already have a signifi cant comparative component; instructors typically compare the way the Constitution was understood by earlier generations and Justices with the way it is approached by modern interpreters; we often compare how the constitutional values seem to be understood differently by the Congress, the President, the judiciary, and the American people, respectively; and we compare the way constitutionalism operates at the state level to the way it works at the federal level.

But alongside these historical, institutional, and domestic geographical axes, there is an increasingly worthwhile, if largely underutilized, opportunity for foreign comparison. Our topical coverage is wide, but not all encompassing; we have focused on those subjects where we think there is something particularly valuable—in terms of understanding the form of constitutionalism and the specifi cs of constitutional law in the United States––to be gained from refl ecting on non-U.S. experiences and approaches.
