Synopsis:

Constitutional and Administrative Law 13 th Edition – Cover Blurb Since 1997, the United Kingdom has undergone the most radical programme of constitutional reform proposed by any government for at least 100 years. Yet the public appear to find it more difficult than ever to hold government to account. Constitutional and Administrative Law by Anthony Bradley and Keith Ewing casts light on the structure of public law that is at the heart of Britain's unwritten constitution. The authors lay emphasis on essential constitutional principles and values, while assessing the impact of recent political events. The new edition of this authoritative work deals with the extensive programme of constitutional reform carried through by the Labour government since 1997. Among developments examined in this book are: the Human Rights Act 1998, incorporating the European Convention on Human Rights and imposing new duties on all public authorities the impact of human rights law on freedom of expression, the law of privacy and on judicial review of public decision-making the devolution of powers to the Scottish Parliament and to Assemblies in Wales and Northern Ireland the partial reform of the House of Lords achieved in 1999 the new system for the control of elections, the registration of political parties and the holding of referendums the Freedom of Information Act 2000 the legal framework for counter-terrorism and surveillance created by the Terrorism Act 2000, the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 and the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001 the continuing impact of European integration on the British system of law and government the evolving nature of Cabinet government and the continuing process of reform in the civil service the evolving standards of ethics in government, affecting the political parties, Parliament, ministers and civil servants. To deal with these events, many chapters have been extensively re-written and all have been revised. The new material seeks to maintain the book's reputation for being fully referenced to primary sources, books and scholarly articles, and the work provides an invaluable starting point both for study of the current law and for further research. The authors Anthony Bradley was Professor of Constitutional Law at the University of Edinburgh until 1989 and is now a practising barrister, specialising in public law. Keith Ewing has been Professor of Public Law at King's College London since 1989 and he previously lectured at Edinburgh and Cambridge universities. He has written extensively in the fields of civil liberties, electoral law and labour law. Longman an imprint of Pearson Education 0 582 43807 1
