Abstract

In The Gun, the Ship and the Pen, Linda Colley traces a history of the emergence of constitutions from the 1750s onwards, showing how they developed in tandem with warfare. Meticulously researched and full of eye-opening details, this evocative book is highly recommended by Duncan Green. The original version of this review was published on From Poverty to Power. The Gun, the Ship and the Pen: Warfare, Constitutions and the Making of the Modern World. Linda Colley. Profile. 2021.
