This book is a study in the history of political communication. Today we take it for granted that the people of a democracy have a right to know how their representatives speak and vote. But in the period of the American Revolution this development was new in both Britain and America. No assembly debates were reported in the colonial press; the constitutional convention of 1787 notoriously met in secret; even the U.S. senate kept its doors closed for its first decade. In Britain parliamentary debates were officially secret until reporting was increasingly but unofficially tolerated due to the pressure of public interest in the same period. Members of Parliament increasingly had their speeches printed for public consumption.In 1803 the Speaker set a gallery aside for the press reporters. J. R. Pole shows that similar forces worked to bring about these profound changes in the concept of political accountability in both the new American republic and the republican aspects of the British mixed monarchy.

Rules of apportionment are elements of social and political order. In social gatherings, families and governments they assume a variety of written and unwritten forms and in every order they determine not only how collective decisions are made but also how and why a particular constitutional order develops over time. Recreating the American Republic provides a far-reaching analysis of when, how and why these rules change and with what consequences. Recreating the American Republic reveals the import of these rules of apportionment by engaging the three most widely recognized and studied eras and events of American political history: the Colonial era and the American Revolution; the early national years and the 1787 Constitutional Convention; and the nineteenth century and the American Civil War. Recreating the American Republic systematically compares each seemingly familiar era and event - revealing new insights and a new metanarrative of American political development between 1700 and 1870.

An original study of a major change in the political thought of modern Britain, arguing that the period between 1956 and 1968 saw a seminal change in political thinking which created the framework of today's politics. A republican tradition of active citizenship, community and democracy was developed within the New Left and the radical Liberals around Jo Grimond. The Right, whose republican version of a property-owners democracy was developed by Michael Oakeshott and Enoch Powell, completed the new political framework.

"The best explanation that I have seen for our distinctive combination of faith, hope and naiveté concerning the governmental process." —Michael Kamman, Washington Post This book makes the provocative case here that America has remained politically stable because the Founding Fathers invented the idea of the American people and used it to impose a government on the new nation. His landmark analysis shows how the notion of popular sovereignty—the unexpected offspring of an older, equally fictional notion, the "divine right of kings"—has worked in our history and remains a political force today.

This study locates the philosophical origins of the Anglo-American political and constitutional tradition in the philosophical, theological, and political controversies in seventeenth-century England. By examining the quarrel it identifies the source of modern liberal, republican and conservative ideas about natural rights and government in the seminal works of the Exclusion Whigs Locke, Sidney, and Tyrrell and their philosophical forebears Hobbes, Grotius, Spinoza, and Pufendorf. This study illuminates how these first Whigs and their diverse eighteenth-century intellectual heirs such as Bolingbroke, Montesquieu, Hume, Blackstone, Otis, Jefferson, Burke, and Paine contributed to the formation of Anglo-American political and constitutional theory in the crucial period from the Glorious Revolution through to the American Revolution and the creation of a distinctly American understanding of rights and government in the first state constitutions.
