Constitution Street : Finding Hope in an Age of Anxiety, Paperback / softback Book

Constitution Street : Finding Hope in an Age of Anxiety Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Welcome to Constitution Street. In this updated edition, Jemma Neville explores what real life stories from neighbours on one street in Leith reveal about our recent constitutional crisis in an age of anxiety pre- and post-COVID 19.

Part memoir, part social history, part exploration of a new constitution for the day we live in, Neville's debut encourages a reclamation of human rights practice as something that belongs to each of us, too important to be left solely to politicians and lawyers. Jemma gets to know the people and stories that have lived on her street for decades, showcasing real life accounts of perseverance, courage and vulnerability, and that extraordinary stories are waiting behind every door.

Constitution Street takes an essential view on the global issue of human rights through the lens of one street and its inhabitants.
