Federal Government of Switzerland, The

Details

The cantons as individual organisms do not stand as isolated facts in the political history of Europe. They are representatives of a large class of political organizations which became conspicuous in the later centuries of the middle ages. The fact that has given them special significance is their union and the development among them of social and political ties when have established the essential conditions of national life and growth. This revolutions, effected by the peaceful processes of constitutional amendment and legislation has placed the events of Swiss history during the last fifty years in line with the movements towards unity which have been carried on in Italy and Germany, and by binding the several cantons so firmly under a central power as to remove the liability of disintegration, has justified the emphasis here given to the establishment of federal institutions as the most important achievement in the political history of Switzerland.
