Oxford constitutional theory.
"In recent years a series of scandals have challenged the traditional political reliance on public constitutional law and human rights as a safeguard of human well-being. ... It is widely accepted that there is a crisis in traditional constitutionalism caused by transnationalization and privatization. ... [This book] argues that the obstinate state-and-politics-centricity of traditional constitutionalism needs to be counteracted by a sociological approach ... . Constitutional sociology projects the questions of constitutionalism not only onto the relationship between public politics and law, but onto the whole society. It argues that constitutionalism has the potential to counteract the expansionist tendencies of social systems outside the state world, particularly of the globalized economy, science and technology, and the information media, when they endanger individual or institutional autonomy."--Provided by publisher.
