This is a study of a Swiss jurist whose thought is demonstrably a primary source of the theory expressed in the Declaration of Independence that happiness is a natural right of man and that helping man to attain this natural right is the chief end of the state. His principles of constitutional government are much like those of the American system.

Originally published in 1937.
