About this book

The contributions to this edited volume discuss constitutional politics in 20 Central and Eastern European countries. The country chapters describe all constitutional amendments and new constitutions after the first post-communist constitution-making, all failed amendment attempts, and the political discourses about constitutional politics. Framed by a broad comparative chapter, the country studies are embedded in the established literature on constitutional politics. The book thus provides a better understanding of constitutional politics in the region and beyond.

Reviews

“The general objective of the volume is to explore constitutional politics in Central and Eastern Europe, a field of research at the barrier of law and politics, requiring in depth knowledge of both disciplines. It was a brave endeavour, and quite a successful one. … the present volume is probably a must for everybody with an interest in the region. It provides a solid comparative work, contains insightful essays and provokes questions for further inquiries.” (Attila Vincze, Zeitschrift für Vergleichende Politikwissenschaft, Vol. 12, 2018)

"… „Constitutional Politics in Central and Eastern Europe“ ist ein hervorragend editierter und gut lesbarer Band, der ganz offensichtlich Lücken in der vergleichenden Politikwissenschaft schließt, viele Daten für weitere Forschungen bereithält und international sowie interdisziplinär anschlussfähig ist." (Sebastian Wolf, in: PVS Politische Vierteljahresschrift, Jg. 58, Heft 3, 2017)

“... eine überzeugend konzipierte und strukturierte Studie, deren Bedeutung insbesondere mit Blick auf die gewählte Methode sich nicht auf die verfassungspolitischen Erkenntnisse im mittel- und osteuropäischen Raum beschränkt, sondern darüber hinaus Maßstäbe für nachfolgende Arbeiten in diesem Feld setzt.” (Lennart Bültermann, in: Osteuropa-Recht, Jg. 63, Heft 1, 2017)

"Insgesamt ist ein detailliertes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Buch entstanden, das durchdachte und ausgewogene Interpretationen der gegenwärtigen Entwicklung in Mittel- und Osteuropa anbietet. Für alle, die sich auf den neuesten Stand des Transformationsprozesses bringen wollen, haben die Autoren ein unentbehrliches Kompendium vorgelegt. Wer sich durcharbeitet, wird mit neuen Einsichten über die politischen Prozesse in der Region anhand der Verfassungspolitik belohnt." (Olaf Leiße, in:  Südosteuropa Mitteilungen, Jg. 57, Heft 4-5, 2017)

“For those with an appetite for trustworthy and comprehensive facts and interpretations about how constitutions have evolved in the region, this volume is unparalleled. And despite its nearly 600 pages, it is remarkably free of filler and is clearly written, providing just enough context for those new to the region to find their way. It is a shame that similar compilations do not exist for other regions.” (Andrew Roberts, I-CONnect, iconnectblog com, July, 2017)
