Synopsis

This valauble book presents fresh perspectives on constitutional change in modern Britain. Each contributor - a leading authority in his particular field - focuses on an institution or aspect of the constitution and asks what has changed, why has it changed and what is likely to happen in the future. In conclusion, Philip Norton challenges the growing pressure for a new constitutional settlement. The British system of government, he argues, is under threat from a fragmentation of power: it needs to be protected not weakened. A new constitution offers the prospect of political inertia and failed expectations.



The book will be essential and stimulating reading for both students and practitioners of British politics.
