This text charts the asymmetry and instability of New Labour's constitutional ""settlement"" and records changes in public attitudes and national identity. The book covers Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, England, intergovermental regions, Westminster and the London assembly. It covers the first year of devolution in the UK, bringing together the work of a five-year research programme funded by the Leverhulme Trust. The programme comprises 11 research projects that bring out the dynamics of devolution. The book also looks at the tensions which have emerged in Wales and Northern Ireland, the growing demand in Westminster for ""English votes on English Laws"" and the machinery created by Whitehall to manage devolution from the centre.
