Liberty Order and Justice
The singular greatness of the constitutional principles that define American governance becomes wholly apparent in this scholarly history and exposition of the quest of liberty, order and justice in England, the American colonies, and, finally, in the United States of America. These qualities, together with the organization of the material presented, should make this revised second edition especially suitable for classes in constitutional history both for undergraduates and for high-school students in advanced courses. The sections include: The Constitution's Deep Roots; America's First Constitutions and Declarations of Rights; The Achievement of the Philadelphia Convention; Basic Constitutional Concepts - Federalism, Separation of Powers, and Rule of Law; Defending the Constitution - the Struggle Over Ratification and the Bill of Rights; Interpreting the Constitution; and Changing the Constitution - Together with an Explanation of the Amendments Added Since 1791. This new edition includes the author's revisions to the original edition published in 1989 by the Center for Judicial Studies.
For the first time ever, a retired Supreme Court Justice offers a manifesto on how the Constitution needs to change. By the time of his retirement in June 2010, John Paul Stevens had become the second longest serving Justice in the history of the Supreme Court. Now he draws upon his more than three decades on the Court, during which he was involved with many of the defining decisions of the modern era, to offer a book like none other. SIX AMENDMENTS is an absolutely unprecedented call to arms, detailing six specific ways in which the Constitution should be amended in order to protect our democracy and the safety and wellbeing of American citizens. Written with the same precision and elegance that made Stevens's own Court opinions legendary for their clarity as well as logic, SIX AMENDMENTS is a remarkable work, both because of its unprecedented nature and, in an age of partisan ferocity, its inarguable common sense.
Explaining Social Behavior
This book is an expanded and revised edition of the author's critically acclaimed volume Nuts and Bolts for the Social Sciences. In twenty-six succinct chapters, Jon Elster provides an account of the nature of explanation in the social sciences. He offers an overview of key explanatory mechanisms in the social sciences, relying on hundreds of examples and drawing on a large variety of sources - psychology, behavioral economics, biology, political science, historical writings, philosophy and fiction. Written in accessible and jargon-free language, Elster aims at accuracy and clarity while eschewing formal models. In a provocative conclusion, Elster defends the centrality of qualitative social sciences in a two-front war against soft (literary) and hard (mathematical) forms of obscurantism.

Defining the Field of Comparative Constitutional Law

Constitutional Courts and European Integration
In a continent where a majority of states are members of the European Union, the supremacy of law can no longer be understood without respect for the supremacy of supranational law. The implementation of this basic principle, deriving from the European Community legal order, from a constitutional point of view poses problems which have not been resolved in a uniform manner. This volume contains seventeen reports which demonstrate how these issues have been dealt with by different legal Systems in Europe.
