"This timely book offers a novel and highly sophisticated assessment of constitutional change as 'revolution.' Its depth of analysis and challenging findings will ensure its status as a benchmark for future research in a burgeoning field."--Stephen Tierney, University of Edinburgh

"This masterful and provocative book forces us to rethink the key concept of constitutional revolution. It provides an essential contribution to the understanding of contemporary constitutional transformations."--Michel Rosenfeld, Yeshiva University

"The concept of 'constitutional revolution' is at once pervasive in scholarly literature and difficult to grasp. Jacobsohn and Yaniv Roznai provide a truly illuminating analysis of this complex subject. Their book, deeply rooted in close and consistently fascinating examinations of constitutional revolutions and counter-revolutions, must be read and grappled with by anyone interested in the fundamentals of constitutional theory and development."--Sanford Levinson, author of An Argument Open to All: Reading The Federalist in the 21st Century
"Constitutional revolutions in a moment or step-by-step? Only by 'The People' or perhaps by the courts? This challenging and valuable work shows that answering these and related questions leads us to consider fundamental matters of constitutional identity and constitutionalism itself."--Mark Tushnet, Harvard Law School
