Abstract
This handbook is written for the general reader—the citizen who is interested in the making and the working of the Constitution of his country. It is hoped, however, that students of Political Science, Government and Law will find it useful as a supplementary reading material to standard works.
Description
The process by which a constitution is made largely depends on the political set up ofthe State at the time. A dictator, who rules by force, merely imposes, with or without consultations, a structure he deems appropriate to his views. In a monarchy, constitution making usually takes the form of transferring the actual exercise of governmental power to the hands of elected representatives of the people. In a democratic republic, the people themselves, through constituent assemblies, conventions or conferences formulate a constitution to be adopted by the people in a referendum or other forms of popular accalamation.
