Foreword: The Myth and Reality of Federalism, 9 U. TOL. L. REV. 615 (1978)

Abstract

In May 1977, I attended, at Ditchley Park near Oxford, a conference
aimed at bringing out whatever contribution our own experience with
federalism might have to make to a wise solution of the British problem of
"devolution" - a word that is currently a term of art referring to the
possible creation of semi-autonomous assemblies or parliaments for
Scotland and Wales. The challenge of correctly and helpfully describing
our own federalism to able British civil servants and politicians stimulated
me to what were (to me) new, or at least more accurate insights into our
system.
