Books Info:

One Law One Nation free pdf On December 10 2011, it will be 15 years since Nelson Mandela signed the final draft of the new South African Constitution at a stadium in the township of Sharpeville. In celebration of this momentous occasion, the book "One law, one nation" charts the story of the long fight for constitutional rights in this country and the astonishing in's and out's of the constitution-making process after 1990. Using hitherto unseen archival, photographic and interview material, including Mandela's handwritten notes from the negotiation process, the book will be a popular account of the birth of what has been heralded as one the most remarkable documents in the world. Many books have shed light on the legal aspects of the South African Constitution. Few have offered first hand perspectives of its development. One law, one nation will also show how the constitution is a living document and how the Constitutional Court plays an instrumental role in ensuring that a human rights enshrined in it are upheld in our young and fragile democracy.
