  • Description:

    This book is a text in constitutional law which narrates the history of the Constitution and democratic processes, explains the constitutional structure of the Philippine government, and defines the civil liberties of individuals by citing their philosophical bases.Based on actual cases resolved by the Supreme Court, the book anchored on and highlights the opinions of the longest sitting associate justice and resident constitutionalist of the High Court today—Senior Justice Reynato S. Puno. The opinions cited in this volume—some 300 out of the more than 700 rendered by the Senior Justice from 1993-2004 were personally chosen by the author as wealthy sources of history, philosophy, and literature, and thus quoted verbatim in various lengths to show the strength and eloquence of the arguments and the beauty and simplicity of their prose. Some of the speeches of the Senior Justice were also included—”all significant for their depth and breath.”
