PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION

THE years of war and its aftermath are revolutionary years. They contrast strangely in their political atmosphere with that which prevailed when this book was written. We are still in the midst of them. Many systems of government throughout the world have been transformed; yet, if the fighting is over, the stability of peace and economic or even political world order are hardly with us. While, except in a few details, the British Constitution has survived unaltered, maybe it too has undergone changes deeper than are yet apparent. It is one of the central theses of this study that a constitution is a reflection of, and can only be understood in relation to, the social system which underlies it, and that is precisely what is most clearly in a state of flux. The cost of war and taxation have brought about changes in the distribution of income the political significance of which maybe profound. They tend towards equality. A general election has resulted for the first time in a House of Commons with a socialist majority intent on considerable changes in the control of industry, the ownership of property, and in the social system more generally. The fact of that majority is itself indicative of a transformation in this country's political thinking. The contrast with ten years ago is striking. If the "lost years" between the wars were sterile and marked by a reactionary political temper, it was as unpopular then to assert this as it would be now to claim the contrary. The modern state is a changing state acknowledging new demands for a planning of social organisation, adopting new forms to meet them, and providing new services, under the impact of a revolutionary widening of political ideas.
