Beschreibung:

The documents in this volume illustrate the ways in which Britain attempted to devise forms of government it was thought would be more suitable for dependencies that had few British settlers who might successfully operate a representative system--and where the majority of indigenous peoples needed protection against such a minority.
Imperial authority and supervision - devices old and new; India - from company rule to empire; representative government - collapse and revival; crown colony government; other dependencies; Ireland under the union - failure of attempts at devolution.
The fifth in a series which provides key documents for the constitutional history of the British Empire and Commonwealth dealing with the evolution of representative and responsible government in the four main settler colonies.
