British Government and Constitution

February 28, 2008

This well-established textbook is part of the Law in Context series. Colin Turpin, author of the first five editions, has been joined by Adam Tomkins, a leading critical scholar.

Who is it for? Undergraduate law students, as well as students of government and politics.

Presentation: Exceptionally clear, in two colours, with excellent use of boxes and shading.

Would you recommend it? Although others in this field may be more student friendly, the book is to be highly recommended for analysing law in its political and social contexts and for considering threats to personal liberty by government responses to apparent threats to security.
