Amendments are, among other things, recognitions of the imperfection of existing schemes of government. The relative ease or difficulty of amendment has significant implications for the ways that governments respond to problems that call either for new structures of governance or new powers for already established structures. This book brings together essays by leading legal authorities and political scientists on a range of questions from whether the U. Constitution is subject to amendment by procedures other than those authorized by Article V to how significant change is conceptualized within classical rabbinic Judaism.
Though the essays are concerned for the most part with the American experience, other constitutional traditions are considered as well. Brandon, David R. Dow, Stephen M. Griffin, Stephen Holmes and Cass R. Vile, and Noam J. Constitutional scholars, teachers, and students will find this book an enormously useful resource. It has all the virtues of a good collection--diversity and connectedness--and it is interesting and timely as well.
Sanford Levinson has given us a remarkable collection of penetrating essays on constitutional amendment by a real pleiad of first-rate legal scholars. Responding to Imperfection is a much-needed volume on the neglected topic of theories of constitutional amendment. It is certain to become a standard reference work in constitutional theory. Original and rigorous, this book is an important contribution to the fields of constitutional theory and jurisprudence, judicial politics, legal history, national and state constitutional law, and comparative law.
