Legislatures

Excerpt

This book is not a guide to the legislatures of all. countries. It confines itself chiefly to countries where the legislature plays some significant part in the system of government, and has done so for a substantial period. Within these limits, moreover, it does not attempt to describe in detail the composition, structure and working of the legislatures concerned. It aims rather at the discussion, on the comparative method, of certain broad themes or issues which arise from a study of the place and purpose of legislatures in modern politics.

I am under a deep debt of gratitude to my friend Professor Peter Campbell of the University of Reading who has read my manuscript with meticulous care, and has made many suggestions for its improvement which I have been delighted to accept. And once again I wish to record how much I owe to my wife's encouragement.
