Hilaire Barnett’s respected and ever-popular textbook helps to provide students with an understanding of the constitution’s past, present and future by analysing and illustrating the political and socio-historical contexts which have shaped the constitution, the current major rules and principles of public law and on-going constitutional reform. Contemporary developments covered include the increasing impact of the law of the European Union on domestic law, devolution to Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, reform of the House of Lords, the continuing importance of the Human Rights Act 1998 and proposals for further constitutional reform.
