The Commonwealth was transformed by the independence of India, Pakistan and Ceylon, and now has 53 members. The Commonwealth summit has accordingly changed in size and character. The author traces the evolving character of Commonwealth summits and of the parallel events now associated with them, and suggests some ways in which they might further evolve.
