This volume explains the basic legal principles of the UK constitution and places the law in the context of the main political ideas which have influenced its development. Presented in an accessible but critical way, the book discusses some of the most fundamental questions about government: how do we ensure that those who exercise power are accountable for their actions? and why should we entrust any group of people with the power to make binding laws and to use violence against us? The fourth edition has been thoroughly revised and restructured to make it more accessible, and updated to emphasize current controversial problems. It now includes the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the Wakeman Report on the House of Lords, reform of political parties, and the developing law under the Human Rights Act 1998.
