In this work, which won the 1924 Pulitzer Prize in history,McIlwain argues that the central problem in the genesis ofthe American Revolution was the determination of the exactnature of the British Empire's constitution. "After asearching examination of a wealth of judicial precedentsdrawn largely from Ireland's relations with the English Kingand parliament, the author reaches the conclusion that'there was a bona fide constitutional issue which precededthe American Revolution, and from which it in partresulted.' He contends that, strictly from the legal stand-point, the colonists had a number of good constitutionalprecedents to support their position.": Allison, Fay (et al)A Guide to Historical Literature cited in Marke, A Catalogueof the Law Collection at NYU(1953)377.
