What happens when liberal constitutional institutions are undone? Can Freedom survive the loss of separation of powers with the associated legal and political accountability?

Prof Michael C. Davis,  a close observer who taught human rights for three decades, will take a forensic look on this subject matter in his forthcoming book, Freedom Undone.
