Description : This acclaimed book provides a topical and contextual outline of the principles,doctrines and institutions that underpin the United Kingdom constitution. The third edition of The Constitution of the United Kingdom has been comprehensively revised and updated to take account of recent constitutional developments and debates. This includes: the revised framework for devolution following the 2014 referendum in Scotland, the constitutional ramifications of the realignment of UK politics reflected in the result of the 2015 general election and the debate over the possible replacement of the Human Rights Act 1998 with a British Bill of Rights. The chapters are written in sufficient detail for anyone coming to the subject for the first time to develop a clear and informed view of how the constitution is arranged and how it operates. The main themes include: discussion of the history, sources and conventions of the constitution; later chapters deal with: constitutional principles, the role of the Crown, Parliament and the electoral system, government and the executive, the constitutional role of courts including the protection of human rights, the territorial distribution of power between central, devolved and local government, and the European Union dimension. In addition, the book offers analysis of the evolution of the uncodified UK constitution, its strengths and perceived weaknesses, and of reforms aimed at its modernisation.

Description : The Constitution of the United Kingdom of Great Britain is not a single specific document that can be pointed to, like the Constitution of the United States. Instead the British have developed a system of rules that establishes the political governance of the island nation. However, there are a number of documents, Acts of Parliament, and international treaties that together form the body of the Constitution of the United Kingdom. Those documents include; the Magna Carta, The Bill of Rights, 1687, the Act of Union 1707, The Act of Union 1801, and the Anglo-Irish Treaty 1928. The United Kingdom of Great Britain is widely recognized as the cradle of modern democracy. The British spread their style of government across the globe during their imperial period. Countless current democratic governments across the world owe their democracies to the British constitution. Even the Constitution of the United States of America, that was drafted during a rebellion against the British Empire, owes much of its substance to British political philosophy grounded in the Magna Carta, and enlightenment philosophers like John Locke.

Description : The 800th anniversary of Magna Carta falls in June 2015. In this work Dr Blick argues that this event should be the occasion for a reassessment of the past, present and future of the UK constitution. He draws on his experience as research fellow to the first ever parliamentary inquiry into the possibility of a written constitution for the UK. Dr Blick considers a series of English and UK historical texts from Anglo-Saxon times onwards, among which Magna Carta is the most prominent, which sought to set out arrangements for the governance of England and later the UK as a whole. He argues that they comprise a powerful tradition of written constitutional documents, and stresses the importance of the European dimension to their introduction and content. The author then considers the present nature of the UK constitution, describing the period of immense flux through which it has passed in recent decades, and the implications of this phase of change. Dr Blick identifies a need for a full written constitution for the UK as the next appropriate step. Finally, he discusses the democratic processes suitable to devising such a text, and what its contents might be. 'With this book Andrew Blick has made a major contribution to our understanding of how our system of government has worked in the past, how it is working – or not working – now, and what it could be in the future. Combing the centuries, he challenges many misconceptions and makes a powerful case for a written constitution. This volume is absolutely essential to anyone who wants to appreciate the real meaning of Magna Carta and why we should celebrate it.' Graham Allen MP, Chair, House of Commons Political and Constitutional Reform Committee 'Beyond Magna Carta brings together the utility of a road map with the fascination of a changing cartography of political thought – all part of the constitutional development of these islands from the Great Charter of 1215 to the confusing aftermath of the Scottish Referendum of 2014. It is a superb work of explanation capped by intriguing suggestions of future possibilities.' Lord Hennessy of Nympsfield, FBA, Attlee Professor of Contemporary British History, Queen Mary, University of London.

Description : The Chartist Movement lives. Lawyers and political scientists present a draft Constitution for the United Kingdom in the hope that an actual document to debate will focus the issue and rouse public support. Their Constitution would replace common law and all prerogative, would replace the House of Lords with an elected body, would establish power-sharing legislative assemblies in the Celtic nations and English regions, and would give greater power to Parliament in international and security areas. The 157-page document is followed by commentary. No index or bibliography. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Description : The English Constitution by Walter Bagehot. The English Constitution is a book by Walter Bagehot. First serialised in The Fortnightly Review between 15 May 1865 and 1 January 1867, and later published in book form in the latter year. It explores the constitution of the United Kingdom, specifically the functioning of Parliament and the British monarchy, and the contrasts between British and American government. The book became a standard work which was translated into several languages. There is a great difficulty in the way of a writer who attempts to sketch a living Constitution-a Constitution that is in actual work and power. The difficulty is that the object is in constant change. An historical writer does not feel this difficulty: he deals only with the past; he can say definitely, the Constitution worked in such and such a manner in the year at which he begins, and in a manner in such and such respects different in the year at which he ends; he begins with a definite point of time and ends with one also. But a contemporary writer who tries to paint what is before him is puzzled and a perplexed: what he sees is changing daily. He must paint it as it stood at some one time, or else he will be putting side by side in his representations things which never were contemporaneous in reality.

Description : The United Kingdom does not have one specific constitutional document named as such. Instead, the so called constitution of the United Kingdom is a sum of laws and principles that make up the body politic of the UK. This is sometimes referred to as an "unwritten" or uncodified constitution. The British constitution primarily draws from four sources: statute law (laws passed by the legislature), common law (laws established through court judgments), parliamentary conventions, and works of authority. Similar to a written constitution, this sum also concerns both the relationship between the individual and the state, and the functioning of the legislature, the executive and judiciary.

Description : This book contains a proposal for a federal constitution as distinct from devolution in the context of the current debate in Britain on constitutional reform. It is proposed that the United Kingdom Federation shall consist of three units plus federally administered territories viz. 1) England, including Wales; 2) Scotland and 3) re-united Ireland. The re-united Ireland as a federating unit would retain its membership of the United Nations, the European Union and its role in foreign affairs to the extent indicated in Part VI of this study. An alternative proposal for Great Britain to be divided into two halves viz. 1) Southern Region; 2) Northern Region and re-united Ireland is also considered. Under the alternative proposal the North East and North West of England, the two declining areas, would form part of the Northern Region and would benefit from the proposed 'regional equalisation programme' funded from a 'distributable pool'. The book analyses the relevant issues with reference to the leading federations and seeks to consider an appropriate model for the United Kingdom.

Description : Praise for the previous editions “[A] slim guide to the constitution of the United Kingdom that is both highly readable and impressively thorough. It deserves a place on undergraduate reading lists ... [students] will certainly find it worth their while' Cambridge Law Journal “[The] written style is admirably clear, conversational and free from jargon ... It will be of immense interest to anybody with a general interest in UK law, politics and history.” Times Higher Education This timely new edition addresses the many constitutional changes that have arisen since 2016 (including those brought about by Brexit and the COVID-19 pandemic) whilst retaining its hallmark features of clarity and concision. Adopting a thematic approach, it discusses questions of history, sources and conventions, the role of the Crown, Parliament and the electoral system, government and the executive, the judiciary, and the territorial distribution of power. In addition, it offers analysis of the evolution of the UK's historic non-codified constitution, its strengths and perceived weaknesses, and of reform initiatives. Engaging with the central issues in play as the UK enters a new chapter, it explores the impact on devolved government, the principle of sovereignty, the role of the courts and parliamentary reform. As well as providing a contextual and authoritative overview of the principles, doctrines and institutions that underpin the elusive constitution, this study will allow students of law and politics, both from the UK and abroad, to develop an informed view of how it actually works.
