'In the area of constitutional reform [New Labour] embarked on a very radical programme. Mark Evans examines the reasons why they did so and the fate of the proposals, many of which were deradicalised as they progressed through the policy making process. As such, this insightful book is essential reading for anyone interested in British politics generally and New Labour specifically.' - Professor David Marsh, Department of Political Science and International Studies, University of Birmingham
'Constitution-Making and the Labour Party is a path-breaking work in several ways. It fills a major gap in the literature on the Labour Party's uneasy historical relationship with the British Constitution and the conservative institutional implications of the latter.' - Philip G. Cerny, Professor of Government, University of Manchester
'This book...provides an historical perspective on the Labour Party and the constitution, a thorough understanding of the role of constitutional reform within the broader New Labour project and an excellent insight into how the constitution should now be studied. The book is impressive in both its scope and its analytical rigour. I thoroughly recommend it.' - Professor David Wilson, De Montfort University, Leicester, UK
'Labour's constitutional reform programme after 1997 initiated the most Comprehensive reshaping of the British constitution for three hundred years. In this wide-ranging study Mark Evans considers why Labour, historically so conservative on the constitution, became the agent of the reforms and assesses their successes and their limitations. This is an essential book for anyone interested in the future of British politics.' - Professor Andrew Gamble, University of Sheffield, UK
