"This book explores the development of constitutional thinking in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand from early domination by Imperial ideas, through the adoption of the Statute of Westminster and the contemplation of severing Imperial connections, to irreversible acquisition of constitutional independence in the 1980s. This book focuses primarily on sovereignty and the legal system, concepts which are also central to contemporary constitutional theory in Europe and the United States."--Jacket." ;
