Abstract

The final issue of Volume 34 of the SAHS Review commemorates, first, the transformation of the Swiss polity undertaken a hundred years ago, that is its transformation from a league of states into a federal state. Simon Netzle explores specifically how the bicameral system adopted in 1787 by the framers of the second constitution of the United States became a feature also of the Swiss political system in 1848.
