Writing the United Kingdom Constitution

First Edition

Brice Dickson

Published by Manchester University Press

Pocket Politics

  • It will be topical: the book chimes with contemporary debates around the future existence of the United Kingdom; will it survive Brexit, will Scotland vote for independence, will Northern Ireland leave the United Kingdom and join the Republic of Ireland, will England demand more autonomy comparable to that of the devolved regions?
  • It will be informative: the book will collect under one cover the substantial, but often ignored, evidence in favour of formalising the United Kingdom's constitution, at least as far arrangements for devolution and fundamental rights are concerned.
  • It will be concise: the material will be presented in a short but clear way, relatively jargon-free and with few assumptions made about prior knowledge; the readability of the text will make it accessible to a broad readership.
  • It will be concise: the material will be presented in a short but clear way, relatively jargon-free and with few assumptions made about prior knowledge; the readability of the text will make it accessible to a broad readership.
  • It will be persuasive: my hope is that the strength of the arguments in the book will convince readers that to continue with a largely unwritten constitution holds too many risks for the future stability of the United Kingdom as a geo-political entity and carries grave political and even economic consequences for everyone living within its current borders.
