The Kingdom To Come
X
The Kingdom to Come Peter Hennessy records the run-up to the Scottish Independence Referendum in September 2014, its immediate aftermath and describes the enormous constitutional building site opened up for the whole of the United Kingdom by the result. This Haus Curiosity includes Lord Hennessy’s personal impressions of the time when the Act of Union, over 300-years-old, was called into question and when he, as one of the country’s foremost experts on our unwritten constitution and a Professor of Contemporary British History, became an important voice in what the future may hold. The Kingdom to Come examines the possible agenda for the remaking of the constitution in the medium and long term.

Peter Hennessy is Attlee Professor of Contemporary British History at Queen Mary, University of London. He was educated at Marling School, Stroud; St John’s College, Cambridge; the London School of Economics and Harvard (where he was a Kennedy Scholar 1971–72). He spent 20 years in journalism with spells on The Times, the Financial Times and The Economist
