Product description


Frank Prochaskas new book is something of a manifesto. (Robert Saunders, The English Historical Review. Volume 128, Issue 533.)

... a succinct, elegantly written and insightful piece ... a stimulating, erudite, and startlingly perceptive read. (Patrick M. Kirkwood, H-Empire.)

this admirably accessible study should realise Prochaska's aim of encoraging his readers to 'return to the writings of these exceptional thinkers'. (James Owen, History)

The book is well-written and thoroughly researched; it is accessible to a broad, educated audience; and it contributes valuably to the study of the American Constitution and its reception and influence abroad. (Alex Zakaras, History)

About the Author

Frank Prochaska was born and educated in America but has lived much of his life in England. His previous books include The Eagle and the Crown: Americans and the British Monarchy (2008); Christianity and Social Service in Modern Britain (2006); The Republic of Britain 1760-200 (2000); Royal Bounty: The Making of a Welfare monarchy (1995); The Voluntary Impulse (1988), and Women and Philanthropy in Nineteenth-Century England (1980). He taught British history at Yale for many years and is an Honorary Fellow of the Institute of Historical Research, London University.
