The British Constitution is in a state of flux and many of its fundamental institutions and principles are being called into question. Does the office of Prime Minister possess too much power? Should an adversary two-party system of parliamentary politics be reformed through the introduction of proportional representation? This collection of articles on constitutional affairs addresses contemporary issues in a clear and concise manner. It brings together complementary expertise of leading lawyers, historians and political scientists in the field and should be of interest to all those concerned with constitutional matters in the UK and abroad.
