I 1 I \tVhat is Federal Government Federal govern· ment is one in which there is a division of powers between the centre and the states. The word federation has a root in the Latin word Foedus which means Treaty or Agreement. According to Finer, "A federal state is one in which part of authority and power is vested in the local areas while another part is vested in a central institution deliberately constituted by an association of the local areas". Federations are formed in a country where there are many free states and they do not want to give all powers to the center, but instead want to keep some powers with them and for the central unity and common defense want to give some power to the center. In this way, the federation of the USA was formed. Secondly, sometimes it so happens that the central government wants to give autonomy to the provinces. In this way, unitary government is converted into a federal government, as happened in Canada.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
