How should political power be divided within and among national peoples? Is the nineteenth-century theory of sovereign and unitary State still fit for purpose in the twenty-first century? If not, can federalism provide a viable alternative model? This collection looks at federalism from the perspective of constitutional law.

Taking the United Kingdom as a case study, it tracks the historical evolution of the Union and explores the concepts of federalism that emerged between the eighteenth and twentieth century. In part two, it assesses the experience of sharing sovereignty with other nations in the context of international cooperation.

Drawing on the expertise of the foremost commentators in the field, it provides a timely reflective stock-take of how constitutional authority is being re-ordered within and beyond the United Kingdom.
