This thought-provoking and engaging book provides an insightful examination of public law, exploring the complex relationship between institutions, individual and state, and offering both explanation and critical analysis. Public law is viewed against a backdrop of differing types of governmental power and the problems to which this may give rise, with a particular focus being given to recent changes in the British constitution. By placing public law in a broader context, the book seeks to take a different approach from that of a general textbook, thereby offering a fresh view of the subject that is topical, relevant and interesting. Whether used as introductory reading or as an ongoing companion to a main course text, it will provide a valuable perspective that will be of great benefit to law students and politics students alike. This new second edition has been comprehensively revised and updated to reflect recent developments in the law. A companion website featuring updates can be found at: www.palgrave.com/law/syrett2e.
