Book: Constitutional Theocracy

Book: Constitutional Theocracy

Here is a book that shows why it makes sense that I blog about political theology and anti-democracy in the same place now: Ran Hirschl (University of Toronto), "Constitutional Theocracy" (Cambridge University Press, November 2010).

Quote: "At the intersection of two sweeping global trends - the rise of popular support for principles of theocratic governance and the spread of constitutionalism and judicial review - a new legal order has emerged: constitutional theocracy. ... In this book, Ran Hirschl undertakes a rigorous comparative analysis of religion-and-state jurisprudence from dozens of countries worldwide to explore the evolving role of constitutional law and courts in a non-secularist world."
