Response to The Alchemists book

This response will be based on Sujit Choudhry’s expertise in the area of constitution-building and democracy-building, and on the proliferation of constitutional courts in particular. Prof. Choudhry has already read the book in full and provided a blurb on the book’s Cambridge Press webpages stating: “Tom Gerald Daly’s The Alchemists is an important contribution to the growing comparative constitutional law of democracy, and takes the literature in exciting new directions. By examining in detail the ‘democracy-building’ jurisprudence of the Brazilian Supreme Court, and the complex interplay between regional human rights courts and national constitutional courts, especially in Latin America, The Alchemists raises a host of important questions and insights that will spark many scholarly conversations.”
