The Irish Constitutional Tradition: Responsible Government and Modern Ireland, 1782-1992
The author employs a theoretical model of parliamentary government, or "responsible government," to analyze the sources, continuities, strengths, and weaknesses of Irish constitutionalism. Against the background of the model, the author examines the failure of the Irish Parliament of 1782-1800, Britain's misgovernment of Ireland from 1801 to 1922, the constitutional implications of Daniel O'Connell's "repeal" agitation in the 1830s and 1840s, and flaws in Irish home rule proposals from 1886 to 1914
