"Its purpose was to show the actual working of the Constitution in the period between the first and second Reform Acts, and in this it was brillantly successful. 'No author of modern times', wrote Dicey, 'has done so much to elucidate the intricate workings of English government as Bagehot. His English Constitution is so full of brightness, originality, and wit, that few students notice how full it is also of knowledge, of wisdom, and of insight. The English Constitution is undoubtedly Bagehot's greatest work. He never revised it, although he wrote a preface for the second edition in 1872. It has retained both its freshness and relevance, and rightly ranks as one of the English classics" (St John-Stevas). "This classic account of that most elusive and least codified of entities, the Constitution of England, never lost its popularity, and shows signs of being elevated from the rank of first-class handbook to a place with De Tocqueville as one of the most important texts in political literature . Bagehot's work is of more than English importance: it is the great defence of empirical as against theoretical politics." (PMM). Printing and the Mind of Man 358. N° de ref. de la librería
