Communal Politics under the Donoughmore Constitution, 1931-1947
The Donoughmore Constitution which sought to regulate politics in Ceylon, now Sri Lanka, was unique in that it was the first time that a mechanism of universal suffrage to elect a national government had been put into effect when only white countries in the European empires had that privilege. The author examines its effectiveness in giving citizens control of their domestic affairs and keeping communal tensions at bay. Very good Paperback. First Edition. 358 pages.
