Beyond Brexit: Towards a British Constitution (English Edition)

Entry into the European Community in 1973 was a momentous event - with seismic consequences for the politics and constitution of Britain. Discussion of Brexit, equally momentous, has been confined almost wholly to looking at the economic consequences of Britain's withdrawal from Europe. But what will happen to the constitution? Beyond Brexit looks for the first time at the impact of Brexit on our constitution - on Parliament, on the courts, on individual rights and, above all, on the question of whether the United Kingdom can be held together.

Vernon Bogdanor explores the ever-changing relationship between Britain and the European Union from the original concept of European unity after 1945 to 21st-century Euroscepticism and our exit from the European Union, and explains what the future holds for our system of government and our constitution.
