Product Description

Review

very readable ... It is a timely publication ... Its five useful appendices and select bibliography provide a menu of facts and preliminary reading which should be compulsory for anyone thinking of lifting the pen to write on the subject in future. (Canon Peter Boulton, Ecclesiastical Law Journal, Issue 18, January 1996)

a lively and provocative read (Lilian Pizzichini, Independent on Sunday)

A well known, highly authoritative work that I should have bought years ago. It's great to be able to obtain a second hand, ex-library copy in find condition.

HASH(0x94ca20d8) out of 5 stars Good introduction to modern monarchy 22 Aug. 2001
By Shawna L. Skinner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In this book Vernon Bogdanor presents the past and present of Constitutional Monarchy in Britain and also where it might go in the future. He begins with a review of how constitutional monarchy has developed in Chapter 1. In the following chapters, he considers specific issues in depth such as the succession, prerogative, and the relationship between the monarchy and the Church of England. He concludes with what might be the future of the Monarchy. The issues are covered in such a way that the reader understands why Britain still has a monarchy and how it functions in a modern society. It is not a difficult book to read, but the author assumes the reader has some knowledge of the British political system. There is still much to be gained, however, even if the reader is not very familiar with British politics. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in the subject.
