By Chaihark Hahm,Sung Ho Kim

What does it suggest to assert that it really is 'we the folk' who 'ordain and determine' a structure? who're these sovereign humans, and the way can they accomplish that? Interweaving historical past and thought, constitutional student Chaihark Hahm and political theorist Sung Ho Kim try to solution those perennial questions through revisiting the constitutional politics of postwar Japan and Korea. jointly, those reports exhibit the infeasibility of the normal assumption that there's a sincerely bounded sovereign 'people' ahead of constitution-making which could stand except either outdoor effect and historic legacies. The authors argue that 'we the folk' purely emerges via a deeply transformative politics of constitutional founding and, as such, a democratic structure and its putative writer are collectively constitutive. hugely unique and surely multidisciplinary, this ebook might be of curiosity to students of comparative constitutionalism in addition to observers of ongoing constitutional debates in Japan and Korea.
