Über diesen Titel


There is very little for the general reader that describes what has happened to the constitution since New Labour came to power. "Reinventing Britain" - an edited collection of essays by leading academics and practitioners - aims to fill that gap. Since the election in May 1997, the British state has undergone radical change. For the previous seventy years, constitutional reform had been on the margins of British politics, pursued only fitfully - or coincidentally (as with the country's accession to the European Community). But in the last ten years, we have seen the institutional architecture of the state remodelled and the relationship between citizen and state has been refashioned. New legislatures have been established; Britons have been given new rights; and the country will soon have a new Supreme Court, free of any link to Parliament. The book is in two parts. The first tells a coherent story - of what has happened, how it has happened and why it has happened. The essays in the second half stand back from the narrative and ask - from contrasting standpoints - what this all adds up to. "Reinventing Britain" is an essential read for anyone who cares about our constitution.

From the Inside Flap:

For an observer of Europe from abroad, this book is pure gold. It is a thorough and highly accessible account of both the way New Labour came to adopt its agenda of constitutional change, and the three big pieces of the puzzle: devolution, judicial reform, and Europe. The authority of the contributors and their grasp of the historical flow of events make it easy to recommend to anyone interested in the ongoing saga of political change in Britain.” Nelson W. Polsby, co-author of British Government and Its Discontents

The constitutional initiatives undertaken during Tony Blair's tenure as prime minister are as little understood as they are significant. That is especially the case in the United States. Those initiatives represent profound change at the heart of Britain's governing structure. Blair's legacy will be shaped in large part by the Iraq war, but the authors of this important book remind us that there was much more to his government that should not be overlooked.” Dan Balz, Washington Post National Political Correspondent
