The Origins of the Irish Constitution, 1928-1941
Edited by: Gerard Hogan
Ireland's Constitution of 1937 represents the culmination of the 'constitutional revolution' begun by Eamon de Valera, John Hearne, and others from the 1930s. Marking the 75th anniversary, The Origins of the Irish Constitution, 1928-1941 is a comprehensive selection of key documents relating to the development and drafting of the Constitution. The documents have been collected from a variety of archival holdings, covering the period of 1929 to 1941. The book includes extensive commentary and annotations as a guide to the complex legal and philosophical problems that arose during the drafting process. This is a project of the Royal Irish Academy, in association with the National Archives of Ireland, with support from the Office of the Attorney General and the Department of the Taoiseach.
