Eminent Victorians on American Democracy

Frank Prochaska

Oxford University Press

Sir Henry Maine was the severest critic of democracy among the Victorians. Indeed he compared it to death. He admired the American Constitution, however, for its conservatism. His analysis touches on a host of issues, including party politics, corruption, elective monarchy, American elections, legislative reform, Congress, and comparative government.
