This book established itself as the standard casebook in Constitutional Law for law schools in Malaysia and Singapore. To truly appreciate the disposition of constitutional law, a sound understanding of a country?s history, economy, sociology and politics is needed. This book offers the student and casual reader, a wide range of readings covering these areas. Appropriate relevant introductions, notes, questions, commentaries and references have been provided. The chapters in this book have been re-ordered to reflect a more current view on how the subject should be approached, with the caveat that each topic is still self contained and may be used on its own in a more fragmented context. The number of cases and secondary material on the subject has also grown dramatically over the years and the jurisprudence of the Malaysian and Singaporean courts have diverged to the extent that this may well be the last edition that can practically accommodate such divergence in a single volume. A culmination of the authors? knowledge based on their combined teaching experience of almost 40 years, this book is an authoritative reference on the subject matter.
