British Constitution: A Very Short Introduction by Martin Loughlin British Constitution: A Very Short Introduction, Paperback (April 2013)

The British constitution has grown organically in response to changes in its economic, political, and social environment, and is not contained in a single authoritative text. In this Very Short Introduction, Martin Loughlin examines the nature and authority of the constitution, and its challenging prospects for the future.

Foundations of Public Law by Martin Loughlin Foundations of Public Law, Paperback (September 2012)

This book develops Martin Loughlin's distinctive and provocative theory of public law, first outlined in The Idea of Public Law. Tracing the historical evolution of the concept of public law, the book rethinks the foundational concepts of state, constitution, and government, arguing that public power is created, not controlled, by law.

Twilight of Constitutionalism? by Martin Loughlin Twilight of Constitutionalism?, Paperback (January 2012)

The concepts and values that underpin traditional constitutionalism are increasingly being challenged by political and economic realities that place substantial power beyond the state. This book gathers leading constitutional theorists to discuss the impact of the growth of transnational governance on the foundational values of constitutionalism.

Paradox of Constitutionalism by Martin Loughlin Paradox of Constitutionalism, Paperback (August 2008)

In modern political communities ultimate authority is often thought to reside with 'the people'. This book examines how constitutions act as a delegation of power from 'the people' to representative and expert institutions, and looks at the attendant problems of maintaining the legitimacy of these constitutional arrangements.
