Abstract

In Constitutional Idolatry and Democracy: Challenging the Infatuation with Writtenness, Brian Christopher Jones contests the claim that a written constitution would benefit UK democracy to instead make the case for a more holistic interpretation of constitutional efficacy. This is a broad, engaging and well-researched contribution to the constitutional law literature, writes William N. Brown. Constitutional Idolatry and Democracy: Challenging the Infatuation with Writtenness. Brian Christopher Jones. Edward Elgar. 2020.
