Revolution And Constitutionalism In The Ottoman Empire And Iran

Shop Revolution Constitutionalism In The Ottoman Empire Iran

The comparison highlights many similarities in the powers struggles, including the paradox inherent in the constitutional revolutions. In his book on constitutional revolutions in the Ottoman Empire and Iran, Nader Sohrabi considers global diffusion of institutions and ideas, their regional and local networking, and the long-term consequences for adaptation to local exigencies. Furthermore, the suddenness and simultaneity of their appearance point to a commonality that transcended the localities. As a wave of democratic social movements, under the influence of velvet revolutions, is sweeping the Middle East, this book calls attention to an earlier wave that swept the region a century ago. Furthermore, it provides a strong case that macrostructural preconditions alone cannot explain the occurrence of revolutions rather, global waves, intervention of agency, and additional contingent events work together to bring them about in competition with other possible outcomes. Comparison also affords exploration of a key difference: the reason for greater resilience of democratic institutions in the Ottoman Empire and modern Turkey in contrast to Iran. The revolutions, despite the differing social structures of the societies in which they happened, shared the same objectives and demands. There are lessons to be learned here. Beyond concern for how and why revolutions happen, the book offers a comparative account of the process of institutionalizing constitutionalism in two settings. Arguing that revolutions are time-bound phenomena whose forms follow global models in vogue at particular historical junctures, the book challenges the ahistorical and purely local understanding of them. ...

Shop Surveillance Terrorism And Comparative Constitutionalism

The decade after 11 September 2001 saw the enactment of counter-terrorism laws around the world. These laws challenged assumptions about public institutions, human rights and constitutional law. Those challenges are particularly apparent in the context of the increased surveillance powers granted to many law enforcement and intelligence agencies. This book brings together leading legal scholars in the field of counter-terrorism and constitutional law, and focuses their attention on the issue of surveillance. The breadth of topics covered in this collection include: the growth and diversification of mechanisms of mass surveillance, the challenges that technological developments pose for constitutionalism, new actors in the surveillance state (such as local communities and private organisations) , the use of surveillance material as evidence in court, and the effectiveness of constitutional and other forms of review of surveillance powers. The book brings a strong legal focus to the debate surrounding surveillance and counter-terrorism, and draws important conclusions about the constitutional implications of the expansion of surveillance powers after 9/11.

American Structures Of Government

In this groundbreaking text, three highly acclaimed scholars provide historical context that puts the politics back into constitutional studies. Constitutionalism in the United States is not determined solely by decisions made by the Supreme Court. Moving beyond traditional casebooks, renowned scholars Howard Gillman, Mark A. Graber, and Keith E. Whittington take a refreshingly innovative approach in American Constitutionalism. Organized according to the standard two-semester sequence-in which Volume I covers institutions and Volume II covers Rights and Liberties- this text is unique in that it presents the material in a historical organization within each volume, as opposed to the typical issues-based organization. FEATURES: * Covers all important debates in U.S. constitutionalism, organized by historical era * Incorporates readings from all of the prominent participants in those debates * Clearly lays out the political and legal contexts in chapter introductions * Integrates more documents and cases than any other text on the market, including decisions made by elected officials and state courts * Offers numerous pedagogical features, including topical sections within each historical chapter, bulleted lists of major developments, explanatory headnotes for the readings, questions on court cases, illustrations and political cartoons, tables, and suggested readings

In The Age Of Global Constitutionalism

The law of immunity of states, of international organisations, and of public officials is one of the most important and most controversial topics of international law. The book consists of five parts: State Immunity National Practice; State Immunity before the ICJ The case Germany v Italy; Commercial Activities and State Immunity; Immunity and Impunity; and Immunities of International Organisations. Although immunities are in principle firmly anchored in international law, their precise legal implications are often unclear. The book takes up a number of new trends and challenges in this field and assesses them within the framework of global constitutionalism and multilevel governance. Contains chapters in both English and French.
