Excerpt from The English Constitution: A Commentary on Its Nature and Growth

In the introductory chapter, the statement is made that one object of the book is to enable American readers to gain a better knowledge of the American government. It may be an advantage to some readers for me to add that Part I. Was prepared specifically in order that Americans might be able to read with greater profit Bryce's The American Common wealth. To fully appreciate that great work, the American needs to be well grounded in English politics. He must know the present Constitution in its theory and in its practice.

Part II. Is designed to answer certain questions often raised in an attempt to understand the present English Constitution. Americans should never forget that, until the founding of the colonies, English history is our history. Nor should they fail to remember that for a hundred years after, there was a per sistent effort to establish in England a government according to what would now be called the American model, - that is, a government based upon an artificial constitution whereby the Legislature and the Executive should be balanced one against the other. It was not until the coming in of the House of Hanover, in 1715, that English constitution-making became of a distinctly different character.
