This book is the leading statement on the UK constitution since the seminal case of Miller, which held that it is for Parliament not the executive to decide whether the UK invokes Article 50 to leave the EU, following the UK's referendum on the issue.

The largest compliment which this book can be paid is that it takes a case which was surrounded by partisan, and at times hysterical, arguments from both sides of the Brexit debate and has subjected the decision to rigorous, scholarly analysis. Every contribution to this book makes a significant entry into the academic discourse and I have no doubt that many of the essays will be subject to scrutiny and debate for many years to come. -- David Blair, Anderson Strathern * Edinburgh Law Review *
