Adopted on May 16, 1814, it was one of the most radically democratic constitutions ever written. With amendments, the most radical being the dissolution of the Act of Union in 1905, it remains in force today. A fine addition to collections of constitutional and comparative law, this illuminating introductory survey shows how liberal political ideas of late eighteenth century influenced European developments during the nineteenth century.
