The aims of this edition remain the same as those of previous editions: namely, to explain and discuss critically the general principles of the constitutional law and administrative law of the UK and to identify their historical and political foundations.

This edition has been recast and substantially rewritten and expanded in order to take account of major changes in the law, notably the burgeoning case law generated by the Human Rights Act 1998, and to consider recent scholarship and political developments. I have tried to make the book clearer and easier to use both as an introductory text for law degree students and as a self-contained text for more basic courses. I have also tried to emphasise difficult and controversial issues.

The law and its political foundations are constantly changing. Since the last edition in late 1999, litigants have begun to exploit the Human Rights Act 1998 in a variety of contexts. These include, for example, immigration, asylum, and prisoners’ rights, the eviction of tenants, pawnbrokers’ rights, access to adoption records, victims’ rights, press freedom and euthanasia.

The Alconbury case in particular involved the relationship between political decisions taken by a minister and the rule of law. It is too early to suggest any general tendencies towards a distinctively British human rights jurisprudence. On the one hand, the Strasburg case law seems to have been systematically applied and a moderate approach adopted. On the other hand, significant differences of approach are emerging between individual judges. Other developments have been influenced by the ‘Nolan Principles of Public Life’ which have pervaded several areas of law, including bringing political parties within a legal regime.

There have also been changes in electoral law and developments in the law of judicial review, notably in relation to the doctrines of ‘unreasonableness’ and legitimate expectations and the bias rule. There has also been important new literature including extra-judicial writings from senior judges and dealing with the influence of the common law on the constitution. Other developments have been disappointing. The long-awaited reform of the House of Lords is unfinished business and the Wakeham Report raises concerns about the dangers to democracy of a legislative chamber which includes persons hand-picked by those already in positions of power.
