This is a straightforward introduction to devolution in all four countries of the UK. This book provides an introduction to the major changes in the political landscape of the UK caused by the political devolution of power to London, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. There is extensive examination of the historical background to these changes with an even more detailed focus upon contemporary political events. The book also helps those wishing to understand devolution by explaining its development, and assessing the operation, strengths and weaknesses of the devolved state.

Throughout the text there are relevant examples used which illustrate the application of more complex ideas and terms, and a balanced picture is presented which takes in the views of federalists, unionists and nationalists. It defines and assesses legislative, executive and administrative devolution across the UK. It considers the impact of devolved bodies on policy and legislative outcomes. It examines the current and likely future impact of the devolved bodies. It details the relationship between the devolved bodies and the Westminster government. It explores the extent to which the system of government in the UK as a whole has changed. It places political developments in their social, economic and cultural contexts.
