In "Federal Britain, " John Kendle explores the British engagement with the federal idea from early 1600s up to today, when the United Kingdom is faced with two major federal constitutional debates. The first is about the nations which comprise the British state and the second surrounds the United Kingdom and the European Union.
Kendle examines the break-up of the first British empire and the development of modern federalism. He discusses the Anglo-Irish relationship, the United Kingdom's relationship to Europe, and other contemporary issues such as the world order, imperial federation and decolonization. "Federal Britain" is a thorough survey on what offers the best potential government for a state concerned with liberty and order.
