Ginsburg, Tom and Aziz Huq (eds.) From Parchment to Practice: Implementing New Constitutions. Cambridge University Press, 2020.

This book explores the problems that arise when a new constitution has been adopted. All new constitutions must manage tension between two forces: aspirations for social and political transformation on the one hand and demands for preservation of the old interests and institutions on the other. The period following the inital adoption of a new constitution is the conceptual, temporal, and institutional bridge between the past and future. It is the moment when the transformative and the preservative forces in constitutional design can come into the sharpest conflict. Through a series of case studies, this volume analyses the variable nature of these type of conflicts--and the diverse means through which they are mediated, whether successuflly or not.
