Self-determination of peoples and plural-ethnic states in contemporary international law : failed states, nation-building and the alternative, federal option by Edward McWhinney( )

19 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In analysing the contemporary International Law principles as to Self-determination of Peoples, Dr. Edward McWhinney gives a special attention to the crisis today of multinational states put together, usually hurriedly and without proper regard for foreseeable later problems in establishing a plural-constitutional order system, by the military victors in World War I in the imposed Peace treaties of 1919. The key to successful exercise of a claimed right to self-determination is Recognition by other, existing states in the World Community and today also admission to the United Nations. In examining the classical rules on Recognition of States and the recent developed practice as to U.N. Membership, the author signals the continuing antinomy of Law and Power and how high political concerns for their own conceived national interests influence or control decisions on application of the legal ground rules in concrete cases by heads of government and their foreign ministries. The author notes at the same time the attempt to consolidate and codify existing rules on a political "regional" basis, most evident perhaps with the European Union today. In addressing the claimed new legal category of "failed state" with the concomitant asserted legal right of other states to intervene, if necessary unilaterally or outside the United Nations, to impose their own "corrective" measures, he suggests that the postulated "failure" in such cases may frequently stem less from problems inherent in the state concerned than from past hegemonial actions by outside states in pursuit of their own geopolitical interests in the region. A special concluding chapter draws on the empirical record of the historical, often trial-and-error experience of the Succession states to the Versailles treaties settlements and to the assorted acts of Decolonisation of the former European Imperial, Colonial powers

Quebec and the Constitution, 1960-1978 by Edward McWhinney( Book )

13 editions published between 1979 and 2019 in English and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Quiet Revolution and two major language bills have transformed Quebec society. Ottawa's response to Quebec's constitutional demands has been slow and erratic. Today Ottawa's bilingualism policies are under heavy criticism. To complicate matters, the English-speaking provinces are seeking more autonomy; and the centralizing economics of John Maynard Keynes -- our modern 'father of Confederation' -- are being challenged. Can our constitution cope with these stresses? Should it be amended, rewritten -- or perhaps simply ignored? Edward McWhinney offers the first thorough analysis of nearly two decades of constitutional development. His book examines Quebec's demands since 1960 for social, economic, linguistic, and political self-determination, and the implications of these demands for our federal system. It also looks at the new pressures on such federal institutions as the Senate and the Supreme Court coming from the constitutional proposals of the English-speaking premiers. The responses of successive federal governments, up to the Constitutional Amendment Bill of 1978, are studied. Since the election in 1976 of a Quebec government officially committed to separatism, the province has begun, without constitutional challenge, to transfer power to new social and economic elite. Edward McWhinney scrutinizes the mechanisms of Quebec's transformation and, in his general survey of constitutional evolution, suggests new possibilities for a truly 'cooperative federalism' and 'renewed' Confederation

Constitution-making : principles, process, practice by Edward McWhinney( Book )

11 editions published between 1981 and 2019 in English and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In response to the general crisis in law and society in contemporary western and communist nations alike, and to the need for new relations between man and the state, Professor McWhinney presents a comparative study of constitutions and constitution-making. This book begins with a discussion of constitutional government in western societies -- the United States, France, Germany, and Great Britain -- the challenges it faces, its philosophy, and its practice. It then draws comparisons to major non-western societies such as Japan and India and to the major powers of the communist world -- the Soviet Union and China. McWhinney discusses in detail the essential aspects of constitution-making -- when, why, and by whom it is done, as well as the art of drafting a constitution. He presents the various options: presidential executive or government by assembly, centralization or decentralization, the rule of law and emergency powers, the open society and affirmative action, and direct and indirect elections. All are examined against an empirical record of the experience of major countries. In conclusion, McWhinney enquires into the claimed socio-economic limits to contemporary constitutionalism, its alleged western ethnocentricity, and the effective political limits to constitutional government today. He offers canons of prudence for contemporary constitution-making
