Two New Books on Comparative Federalism

Two new books on comparative federalism were recently published.  Here are a few details on the books:

Nicholas Aroney and John Kincaid coedited Courts in Federal Countries: Federalists or Unitarists? (University of Toronto Press 2017). The book examines high courts and federalism jurisprudence in Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Ethiopia, Germany, India, Mexico, Nigeria, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, and the United States.

Francesco Palermo and Karl Kössler have published Comparative Federalism: Constitutional Arrangements and Case Law (Hart 2017). This handbook offers a comparative constitutional law perspective on federalism while also emphasizing federal practice. It features case law from federal systems around the world and compares intergovernmental relations in topical policy areas.
