The U.S. Constitution was written by men who sought not only to fashion a government for themselves but for societies everywhere. Their ideas formed a document that may be more far-reaching than the greatest scientific discovery in its influence on governments and societies throughout the world. The present volume, which examines that influence, is one in a series on constitutions in Asia, Africa, Europe, and Latin America. Its focus is on the mutual interaction of the U.S. Constitution and constitutions in Taiwan, Korea, Japan, Thailand, Australia, and the People's Republic of China. It examines both historical and contemporary constitutions and evaluates fundamental problems that recur in important world regions.
