From the Back Cover:

A Century of Constitutional Reform is a detailed study of major constitutional legislation in the United Kingdom enacted over the last century since the passage of the Parliament Act 1911.

The book encompasses Acts that have served to reshape the constitutional landscape of the nation. It also takes a comprehensive look at the major constitutional landmarks that have shaped the relationship between the following: the two Houses of Parliament (the Parliament Act 1911, the House of Lords Act 1999); the different regions of the United Kingdom (the Scotland Act 1998); the UK and the rest of Europe (the European Communities Act 1972); Parliament and the people (the Representation of the People Act 1918), and the state and the individual (the Human Rights Act 1998). 

It focuses especially on the measures passed in the period since 1970 which have served to challenge the basic structure of the Westminster model of government, and which some commentators believe has heralded a new constitution for the United Kingdom.

Contributions throughout the book are written by specialists in the field, and Lord Norton is an acknowledged expert on British constitutional legislation. As such, he is ideally placed to edit this fascinating and timely volume.
