Constitutional and Administrative Law provides a comprehensive and very readable introduction to the basic legal principles of the UK constitution. Critical yet accessible, the book places the law in the context of the main political ideas which have influenced its development and discusses some of the most fundamental questions about government. This new edition is fully updated, with more detailed coverage of aspects of administrative law and an increased focus on human rights/civil liberties. There will also, for the first time, be a companion website.
