About this book

The UK is going through a period of unprecedented constitutional change. There is much unfinished business, and further changes still to come. Where are these changes taking us? In this book, leading political scientists and lawyers forecast the impact of these changes on the UK's key institutions and the constitution as a whole.

Reviews

'Were there to be a Royal Commission on the constitution, this book would be its handbook.' - Lordon Philip Norton, Professor of Government at the University of Hull, UK

'Constitutional reform is a process not an event. It is taking us into uncharted waters. All students of the constitution

will be grateful to Robert Hazell and the Constitution Unit at University College, London, for Constitutional Futures Revisited, which shows us how to steer past the dangerous shoals and reach dry land.' - Vernon Bogdanor, Professor of Government, Oxford University, UK

'We used to think of the British Constitution as having an illustrious past but not much of a future. The last 10 years have changed all that. The question for lawyers, constitutionalists, politicians, and the public at large is now: where will (and should) it all end up? That is the question this valuable book answers.' - Lord Bingham, Senior Law Lord

'Britain's constantly morphing constitutional landscape needs an ace cartographer to make sense of it for the rest of us and in Robert Hazell it has found one. His team of fellow map-makers is very impressive and the result is fascinating.' - Peter Hennessy, FBA, Attlee Professor of Contemporary British History, Queen Mary, University Of London, UK

'Like all good books, Constitutional Futures Revisited provokes as many questions as it answers...[it] has set a new benchmark in terms of state of the art constitutional studies in the United Kingdom.' - Political Studies Review

'An excellent book...At a time in which the UK constitutional structure is changing at an exceptional rate, Constitutional Futures Revisited should be considered an essential read.' - Public Law
