Overview
The British Constitution has recently become a highly contentious source of political critique and reform activity. In spite of the evident increase in constitutional activity, the traditional ethos of a constitution driven by pragmatic and political consequences has meant that the full significance of such a rapidly developing issue has barely been recognised, let alone analysed.The politics of the British Constitution provides the first major assessment of the properties, dynamics and implications of this new area of political exchange. It investigates the methods employed to mobilise, and resist, the pressure for constitutional change; it examines the ways in which political agendas are formed in response to constitutional issues; and it reviews the respective positions, arguments and strategies that exist between different types of political motivations and objectives on the one hand and the kind of constitutional positions which are adopted on the other. This systematic and original analysis of both the causes and effects of the political disputes surrounding the constitution offers an elegant and original guide to a complex, yet highly topical and profoundly important, area of British politics.
