Devolution to Scotland and Wales represented the most fundamental reform of the British state for almost a century.  Ten years on, how successful has the reform been?  Drawing on the views of citizens, elected representatives and interest groups in Scotland and Wales, this book provides an answer.
 
The book is based on a wide ranging program of research, involving dedicated surveys and interviews across Scotland, Wales and England.  The results provide important new evidence on how devolution has been seen to have performed.  What are its perceived achievements? What are its shortcomings? Is the new devolution "settlement" stable, or is there a demand for further reform?  By bringing together perspectives from the public, members of the devolved legislatures and representatives of civil society, the book establishes a unique picture of where devolution in Britain stands today.
 
The book is accessibly written, and contains a wide range of useful primary data.  It is ideal for undergraduate and postgraduate students studying devolution in Britain, as well as for general readers with an interest in constitutional reform and territorial politics.
