Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
This extraordinary collection of essays brings vividly to life the process of crafting the first constitution of post-apartheid South Africa. Writers include many participants in that careful process, as well as legal and constitutional scholars. What is described is a profoundly democratic process intended to capture the genuine will of a people who had been entirely disenfranchised, and now found their aspirations were to be reflected in a founding document. Strikingly, womens rights, economic security, and the protection of the environment receive the explicit protections missing in our own constitution. This book is essential reading for students of democracy, law, rights, and race.
