The Practice of Constitutional Development

Vincent Ostrom's Quest to Understand Human Affairs

This edited collection further expands our knowledge about what comprises a successful constitution in both theory and application. Building on the research and analysis of Vincent Ostrom who, as one of America's leading scholars on constitutions, has spent a lifetime writing about constitutions in America and overseas. Extending Ostrom's intellectual quest to solve constitutional dilemmas, the scholars gathered here discuss a wide variety of issues, ranging from the problems of water scarcity and local public economies in Africa to the prospect of a new political order in the European North.
