This book places recent developments in the United Kingdom in their historical context by examining the political and constitutional aspects of devolution in Britain from Gladstone's espousal of Home Rule in 1886 right up to the 1998 legislation governing the Scottish Parliament and the Welsh Assembly. Vernon Bogdanor considers what devolution will mean for Scotland and Wales and discusses parallels with earlier devolution debates.
