Constitutional Politics in Europe

Alec Stone Sweet

  • This is the first comparative book on European constitutional courts, and the new constitutionalism, written by a social scientist.
  • The book elaborates a theory that synthesizes key insights of rational choice and normative approaches to politics ... the question of if and how one might do so has been the central problem of the new institutionalism
  • The book examines the impact of constitutional courts on both legislating and judging in five polities, including four national cases plus the EU.
