Borrowing Constitutional Designs:
Constitutional Law in Weimar Germany and the French Fifth Republic
Cindy Skach

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [in PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"Borrowing Constitutional Designs provides a skeptical new look at the French model of presidential government that is very influential throughout the world today. In placing it against the background of the Weimar experience with a similar form of government, this book makes a substantial contribution to our constitutional understanding."--Bruce Ackerman, Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science, Yale University

"This lucidly written book is a valuable addition to the literature on comparative politics. It advances discussions of governmental systems by defining and analyzing three types of semi-presidentialism. And it presents well chosen and professionally executed case studies of the French Fifth Republic and Weimar Germany. I learned a great deal from these."--Michael Laver, New York University, author of Representative Government in Modern Europe
