Written by constitutional law specialist Bruce Harris, New Zealand Constitution An Analysis in Terms of Principles, is a unique commentary on New Zealand's unwritten constitution. The book, is written around sixteen fundamental principles, on which, in the author's view, the New Zealand constitution is built. The commentary on each principle is used to explain, analyse and critique the complex system of law and conventions that make up the constitution. The objective is to ensure that readers understand the New Zealand constitution as providing the foundation for an integrated system of stable government and an ordered society. This systematic approach to explaining the architecture of the constitution, is based on the authors more than forty years of experience of teaching and researching New Zealand constitutional law. The result is not only a clearly written and highly accessible text explaining the fundamentals of the New Zealand system of government, but also an indispensable learning tool for law students studying public law, political studies students, legal practitioners, judges, members of parliament, persons working in government and members of the community generally.
