From the 1688 revolution to the beginning of 19th century, the English constitution underwent
a deep transformation. While the divine right of Kings and the royal prerogative waned, the role of Prime Minister and rule by Cabinet became paramount; a two-party system
gradually imposed itself in the new-born “Great Britain”. But this essential change went
nearly unobserved by political thinkers and jurists of the time, with the notable exception
of J.J. Park, who published The Dogmas of the Constitution, a sharp denunciation of the
gap between theoretical and actual constitution, in 1832, the year of the Great Reform Act.
