"Helpful yet unobtrusive, Smith's is an ideal introduction for those seeking to locate Bagehot in the context of his time or for those looking for an informed summary of his argument, motivation, and general purpose." Adam Tomkins, University of Oxford, Constitutional Commentary "This is one of those rare, intelligent treasures that one cherishes...In essence this is the ideal instrument for teaching about Bagehot's view of the Constitution. This edition is far more useful for the classroom." British Politics Group
