Description: 
In the modern world, the constitutions of nation states have come to be seen as the key guarantors of human rights. During the nineteenth and twentieth centuries the national constitution became the basis of the political order in most countries around the world. The extent to which the constitution provides effective protection for the rights of citizens has thus become a major determinant of the political life of nations, including the nations of the Asia-Pacific region. (First paragraph of introduction).
