In this fascinating exploration of democracy, Reynolds assembles prominent scholars to discuss the successes and failures of constitutional design. Chapters analyze the effects of presidential and parliamentary systems, issues of federalism and autonomy, and the varying impact of electoral systems, concluding with notable case studies of Fiji, Ireland, Eritrea, Indonesia, Nigeria, and India. The culmination of the study of constitutional engineering in the third wave of democracy, this important work sets parameters for crucial research as democracy diffuses across the world.
