towards inclusive, participatory democracy. a number of elements of constitutional histories inside of and out of doors of Europe are tested from a comparative, transnational, and multidisciplinary ancient point of view, geared up round 5 key topics. the 1st half appears at constitutions as
anti-revolutionary units, and addresses country development, monarchical constitutionalism, and restorations. the second one half takes up constitutions and the justification of latest social inequalities, targeting women's suffrage, human rights, and estate. The 3rd half makes use of person nation experiences to tackle questions of the way constitutions served to advertise nationalism. using constitutions as tools of imperialism is roofed within the fourth half, and the ultimate half examines the ways
