Product Description

Review

The Changing Constitution has become firmly established as an invaluable guide to the current state of constitutional affairs in the United Kingdom. (The Student Law Journal)

The Changing Constitution is also part of a public law online resource centre which gathers together a superb list of web links, an excellent interactive timeline, and a useful list of Oxford 'news now'. (The Student Law Journal)

For anyone studying public law, particularly with a constitutional emphasis, The Changing Constitution is an important text. Its list of contributors is impressive, many of them being esteemed authors in their own right. It is rather unique, and feels much like a journal, given its issue based approach: this makes it ideal for essays and really understanding current issues. (The Student Law Journal)

Review from previous edition Since it's first publication in 1985, Jowell and Oliver has been widely regarded as an important supplement to recommended textbooks for Constitutional Law, addressing constitutional development and reform by distinguished academics. This new edition is arguably no exception. (The Law Quarterly Review) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

First Sentence
Although Dicey rightly saw the Rule of Law as a constraint upon the unbridled exercise of public power, for him it meant the virtual exclusion of official discretion, which he equated with arbitrary power. Read the first page
