The Constitution of Independence


Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a detailed discussion of the attempts by constitutional commentators in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand to explain the fundamental changes that occurred in 1982 and 1986. While a great deal of descriptive writing was published at this time, this chapter focuses on those writers who attempted to explore more carefully the legal, political, and social forces that were at play.

Keywords:   constitutional independence, disguised revolution, imperial sovereignty, popular sovereignty, Slattery, Winterton, Morin, Woehrling, Brookfield, Zines
