The political theory of the Irish Constitution considers Irish constitutional law and the Irish constitutional tradition from the perspective of Republican theory. It analyses the central devices and doctrines of the Irish Constitution - popular sovereignty, constitutional rights and judicial review - in light of Republican concepts of citizenship and civic virtue. The Constitution, it will argue, can be understood as a framework for promoting popular participation in government as much as a mechanism for protecting individual liberties. It will be of interest to students and researchers in Irish politics, political theory and constitutional law, and to all those interested in political reform and public philosophy in Ireland.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This book deserves to attract a wide range of readers including political scientists, constitutional lawyers and historians.The issues identified are relevant far beyond the Irish context, a reality underscored by the decision to open chapters by placing the relevant issues in an international and wider historical and philosophical context. Irish readers will be particularly grateful for this book's contribution to reclaiming the word 'republicanism' from men in balaclavas and restoring it to its proper context.' Thomas Mohr, School of Law, University College Dublin, Ireland, Parliaments, Estates and Representation, April 2016 -- .
