Vernon Bogdanor is one of the most important authorities on British politics. This collection no doubt benefits both from his scholarly acumen, as well as his considerable ties with similar major names in the field. There is to my mind no other work that so comprehensively considers the British constitution in all its richness. ( Thom Brooks, The Law and Politics Book Review)
Everyone will find chapters of value here. The simple point is that every library should have this book and anyone teaching or doing research on British government should consult it. ( R. A. W. Rhodes, Public Administration)
This book is a collection of 16 excellent essays ... It carries a valuable introduction by editor Vernon Bogdanor that, unconventionally but wisely, introduces the theme rather than the essays, and a fascinating but tantalisingly short conclusion highlighting the important trends of British political life ... I know no other volume that comes anywhere near it in depth and range. It is bound to remain a reliable and indispensable source of reference for quite some time. ( Bhikhu Parekh, Times Higher Education Supplement)
Bogdanor's fascinating encyclopedia brings together sixteen subject chapters by different hands ... Every chapter is richly informative, and many are studded with statistical tables that shed fresh light on specific changes over the course of the century ... These essays are full of absorbing detail and delicate nuance. ( Ferdinand Mount, Times Literary Supplement)
In The British Consitution in the Twentieth Century, tradition and innovation live together and are methodologically integrated. The overall impression is one of a consolidated methodology in the best classical tradition of British constitutional scholarship. ( Alessandro Torre, Diritto publico comparato ed europeo)
...an appetizing and stimulating antipasto to the more substantial meal that the reader stimulated by these essays must find elsewhere. ( International Journal of Constitutional Law)
This is the first scholarly survey of the British constitution in the twentieth century. Indeed, it fills a very real gap in the history of Britain during the last hundred years.
The book is a product of interdisciplinary collaboration by a distinguished group of constitutional lawyers, historians and political scientists, and draws where possible on primary sources. Its evaluation of the recent constitutional reforms will be of particular interest.
This major interpretation of the constitution will remain authoritative for many years.
