From Empire through Commonwealth to ...

  • L. C. Green

Abstract

The following paper traces, in terms of international law, the history of the once indivisible British Empire to its present status. Professor Green discusses the emergence of the Commonwealth as the pressure for greater independence from the colonial territories renders the divisibility of the Empire and of imperial sovereignty an accepted fact. Today, with the development of the United Nations, the institutional and legal character of the Commonwealth has virtually disappeared.
