Biographical Note

Albert P. Melone is a professor emeritus of political science  at Southern Illinois University Carbondale.  Melone's 46-year teaching career includes 26 years (1979-2005) at SIUC, where he first came as a visiting associate professor in 1979. Melone earned his doctorate in political science from the University of Iowa, and master's and bachelor's degrees from California State University. Melone was a Faculty Senate President 1996-1997 at SIUC.

Melone is the author of many books, articles, chapters in collected works, and book reviews dealing with judicial politics and behavior, judicial processes, law and courts, comparative government and judicial politics, constitutional laws, and interest group politics. He continues his research and writing and otherwise occupies his time with consultative activity.

Melone authored, and co-authored many books including the following titles: Creating Parliamentary Government: The Transition to Democracy in Bulgaria; The American Legal System: Perspectives, Politics, Processes, and Policies; Researching Constitutional Law, Third Edition; Primer on Constitutional Law; and Judicial Review and American Democracy.  In Creating Parliamentary Government: The Transition to Democracy in Bulgaria Melone shows a successful democratization in  Bulgaria. The heart of this book is Melone’s lively interviews with many key players in Bulgaria’s historic transition to democracy. Prime ministers, the head of the secret police, parliamentarians, jurists, and intellectuals—all founders of the new democratic regime—provide firsthand accounts about what it takes to create a parliamentary democracy from the scrap heap of a discredited Communist dictatorship.
