" Democracy in Britain includes a rich and varied selection of key writings, from the debates around Britain's representative and democratic institutions, from constitutional commentary and diaries to poetry and fiction; from Locke and Burke to Dryden and Auden; and from Magna Carta to " Spycatcher.

"An intelligent collection that brings disparate figures and ideas into fruitful dialogue." New Statesman & Society

"This is not an average anthology. At its best, which is much of the time, it is a sustained and marshalled analysis, a wide-ranging dialectical thesis with witnesses for both the prosecution and defence, a historical examination of the continuing, unresolved - and intensely topical - debate about democracy and the nature of the British state." The Guardian

"This collection of essays has something to enrage, inform, and sometimes startle everyone in Britain interested in how we got to here. More fleshed out than a dictionary, it is nevertheless full of succinct definitions." The Observer
