William N. Eskridge Jr., John Ferejohn. A republic of statutes : the new American Constitution. Yale University Press, c2010.

KF4550.E837 2010

 

This book presents a nontraditional framework for thinking about American constitutionalism.  Instead of emphasizing the words and structure of the Constitution, this framework focuses on the primary instruments of the political process itself such as statutes, executive orders, and agency rules.  The authors assert that while the Constitution provides a vision, our democracy advances by means of these other instruments that supplement or even supplant the written Constitution.
