    Chronicling the past is much easier than chronicling the present, which was exactly Walter Bagehot's project when writing The English Constitution, first published in 1873. His ambitious undertaking was to describe the British government as it actually worked during 1865 and 1866. Government as it functions is very different from the government as it is spelled out on paper. Many factors, including the mindset of the people and the habits of those already in government, affect how a country is run. Political scientists and ... Show more

Take in the introduction to The Seond Ed

by Karl on Nov 15, 2012

Given the lowness of politics today, to read the higher reaches of this great provider is a privilege. Just take pages 280 - 281. Incomparable. Timeless. Thank you Walter Bagehot.

The book arrived in good condition. However, even allowing for the fact that the writer wrote in the 19th century, I found it tedious and wordy. I was looking for a fuller explanation of the (unwritten) English constitution, but I found too many instances where the writer was tempted into side-issue comparisons, mostly unfavourable, with the American Constitution. I found it too tedious to finish.
