Contemporary Wales '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. '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
