Constitutionalism beyond Liberalism bridges the gap between comparative constitutional law and constitutional theory. The volume uses the constitutional experience of countries in the global South - China, India, South Africa, Pakistan, Indonesia, and Malaysia - to transcend the liberal conceptions of constitutionalism that currently dominate contemporary comparative constitutional discourse. The alternative conceptions examined include political constitutionalism, societal constitutionalism, state-based (Rousseau-ian) conceptions of constitutionalism, and geopolitical conceptions of constitutionalism. Through these examinations, the volume seeks to expand our appreciation of the human possibilities of constitutionalism, exploring constitutionalism not merely as a restriction on the powers of government, but also as a creating collective political and social possibilities in diverse geographical and historical settings.

Combines theoretical and comparative constitutional analysis, putting together two sets of discourses that are usually separate, enabling theory and practice to be mutually enhanced
Theoretically comparative, providing the reader with a better understanding of the possibilities of constitutionalism
Geographically comparative, enabling the reader to see how constitutional theory can transcend national and cultural differences
