Recommended: Steven Taylor’s post about the need for a conversation about the US constitution, with a nice overview of the evolution in his own thinking on the matter.
Steven is one of three coauthors with me on a forthcoming book on US democratic institutions and practice in comparative perspective. (The others are Arend Lijphart and Bernie Grofman. Earlier drafts of the chapters are on my website. The book itself is set to be published by Yale University Press in a year or so.)
