Excerpt from The Spirit of American Government: A Study of the Constitution; Its Origin, Influence and Relation to Democracy
It is the purpose of this volume to trace the inﬂuence of our constitutional system upon the political conditions which exist in this country to-day. This phase of our political problems has not received adequate recognition at the hands of writers on American politics. Very Often indeed it has been entirely ignored, although in the Short period which has elapsed since our Constitution was framed and adopted, the Western world has passed through a political as well as an industrial revolution.
