    In her ambitious book, Angeliotta Sperti, examines the expansion of gay, lesbian, and same-sex couples’ rights, primarily analyzing the work of domestic supreme and constitutional : Ivana Isailovic.

In this book, Aileen Kavanagh argues that the HRA gives judges strong powers of constitutional review, similar to those exercised by the courts under an entrenched Bill of Rights. This is a completely revised and updated second edition of Rights Before Courts (, paper edition ). This book carefully examines the most recent wave of the emergence and case law of activist constitutional courts: those that were set up after the fall of communism in Central and Eastern Europe.
