Review Quotes
Contemporary Wales

“It is a comprehensive and authoritative account of the devolution settlement in Wales, and a major contribution to the literature on devolution more generally. The University of Wales Press should feel equally proud: it is a beautifully edited and produced book, which is a real pleasure to read.” –Contemporary Wales

Public Administration

“ . . . admirably comprehensive and microscopically detailed study…a valuable legal take on where we are now and where we might go from here.” –Public Administration

Public Law

“ . . . the most stimulating and thorough account of British devolution yet published. It is a considerable feat of scholarship. At once detailed and informative, clearly and often entertainingly written, and always thoughtful, the book . . . is a triumph. Delineating Wales is an unrivalled work for anyone who wants to see up close the often astonishingly chaotic way in which constitutional policy and public law may be made in Britain.” –Public Law


“This is one of the two most important books about Welsh society and politics to appear in our generation . . .  Rawlings gives us a magisterial account of the civic institutions that are being put in place . . .  Delineating Wales brilliantly describes the emerging political culture of civic Wales.” –Planet

Modern Law Review

“Rawlings has produced a masterful guide to Welsh devolution, which should be read by all with an interest in the modern public law in the United Kingdom.” –Modern Law Review

British Journal of Politics and Industrial Relations

“Rick Rawlings’ massive tome on Welsh devolution is probably the most comprehensive academic contribution to the study of this new constitutional consciousness. It is an expert text . . . an indispensable chronicle of these developments.” –British Journal of Politics and Industrial Relations
