Anglo-American Exceptionalism

(p.122) 6 Conclusion
Eminent Victorians on American Democracy

Frank Prochaska

Oxford University Press

The Conclusion pulls together the themes that run through the earlier chapters and suggests that for all the variations in thinking about American government by the Victorians, a common strand in their opinion was a belief in Anglo-Saxon exceptionalism, that is, that the United States drew heavily on British constitutional traditions and that both countries had a gift for self-government.
