A New Image of the History of the European Constitutionalism. Some Remarks on the monograph entitled „Reconsidering Constitutional Formation I National Sovereignty.  A Comparative Analysis of the Juridification by Constitution”, ed. By Ulrike Müßig, Springer Open, 2016

Andrzej Dziadzio

The reviewed monograph deserves the attention of both legal historians and constitutionalists, since it deals with the forming of European constitutionalism on the three levels: doctrinal, historical and comparative. Sovereignty of the nation was a fundamental principle of European constitutionalism and parliamentarism. The presented description of the process of juridification of national sovereignty based on the Polish, Spanish, Belgian and Italian constitutional models, considerably broadened the research field to be exploited by those interested in the origins of the European constitutional experience, both that of permanent and ephemeral nature. This experience makes up a common tradition reflective of the European constitutional pattern which in the present-day Europe is referred to as the “state of law” (Rechtsstaat).
