Introduction to the Constitution of the Republic of Poland by Bogumił Szmulik and Jarosław Szymanek is a cohesive and no-nonsense overview serving as an unassuming and reader-friendly compendium of the current Polish Constitution. With each chapter, the authors gradually introduce readers to the world of legal and political constitutional complexities. Without overloading readers with information, they conduct a comprehensible if accessible narration as well as providing intelligible but nuanced and critical accounts of difficult and controversial matters. Despite its modest title, their work is much more than a simple introduction to the Polish Constitution. Readers will find here not only an approachable analysis of the contents of the 1997 Constitution but will also become familiar with the practice of its implementation as well as with the trajectories of related debates and proposals for future changes. Such a comprehensive approach on the part of the authors makes the book suitable not only for constitutional lawyers, i.e., professionals, but for a much wider group of general readers, both at home and abroad. After all, each of us – regardless of our type of education or scope of interests – ought to be conversant with the constitution of our country. As regards international readers, the English translation of the book may well be the only wide-ranging publication available presenting the Polish fundamental statute. Prof. dr hab. Genowefa Grabowska Authored by Bogumił Szmulik and Jarosław Szymanek, the monograph is an invaluable and fascinating example of a scholarly publication. The book specifies and explains the solutions – often very general and challenging in terms of interpretation – adopted by the legislators in the Constitution of the Republic of Poland. The mode of disquisition is informed by didacticism and systematism, making the publication exceptionally valuable, given the wide range of readers currently interested in constitutional matters. Concise and simultaneously packed with information, Introduction to the Constitution of the Republic of Poland is also likely to constitute an important point of reference while solving theoretical and practical dilemmas connected with the Polish fundamental statute. dr hab. Paweł Sobczyk, prof. UO

The author describes all important details of the law governing hours and wages, benefits, intellectual property implications, trade union activity, employers' associations, workers' participation, collective bargaining, industrial disputes, and much more. Building on a clear overview of labour law and labour relations, the book offers practical guidance on which sound preliminary decisions may be based. It will find a ready readership among lawyers representing parties with interests in Poland, and academics and researchers will appreciate its value in the study of comparative trends in laws affecting labour and labour relations.

This book analyses emerging constitutional principles addressing the regulation of the internet at both the national and the supranational level. These principles have arisen from cases involving the protection of fundamental rights. This is the reason why the book explores the topic thorough the lens of constitutional adjudication, developing an analysis of Courts’ argumentation. The volume examines the gradual consolidation of a "constitutional core" of internet law at the supranational level. It addresses the European Court of Human Rights and the Court of Justice of the European Union case law, before going on to explore Constitutional or Supreme Courts’ decisions in individual jurisdictions in Europe and the US. The contributions to the volume discuss the possibility of the "constitutionalization" of internet law, calling into question the thesis of the so-called anarchic nature of the internet.

This collection examines case-based reasoning in constitutional adjudication; that is, how courts decide on constitutional cases by referring to their own prior case law and the case law of other national, foreign, and international courts. Argumentation based on judicial authority is now fundamental to the resolution of constitutional disputes. At the same time, it is the most common form of reasoning used by courts. This volume shows not only the strengths and weaknesses of such argumentation, but also its serious methodological shortcomings. The book is comparative in nature, with individual chapters examining similar problems that different courts have resolved in different ways. The research covers three types of courts; namely the civil law constitutional courts of Germany, Italy, Poland, Lithuania, and Hungary; the common law supreme courts of the United States, Canada, and Australia; and the European international courts represented by the European Court of Human Rights and the Court of Justice of the European Union. The authors are distinguished scholars from various countries who specialise in constitutional justice issues. This book will be of interest to legal theorists and practitioners, and will be especially insightful for constitutional court judges.
