    Niccolò Machiavelli: Father of Modern Constitutionalism.Mortimer N. S. Sellers - 2015 - Ratio Juris 28 (2):216-225.
    Niccolò Machiavelli is the father of modern constitutionalism. Constitutionalism began anew in the modern world with the study of the ancient republics and it was Machiavelli who inaugurated this revived science of politics.
