Territory and Power remains a satisfying read, partly because of the narrative, but mainly because of its clear conceptualisation, where its terms and concepts have subsequently entered conventional thinking in academic circles. The language that today's students of politics use to describe the United Kingdom and its messy asymmetrical structures derive in part from this book. Bulpitt anticipates much of the current debate about path dependence and the importance of history in the new institutionalism (Bradbury, 2006). The book is a statement of a particular culture and system of territorial politics that was prominent in the twentieth century at the time as being a theoretical treatise on the UK state. It provides a backdrop to evaluate the current state of territorial and devolved politics. Most of all, it provides a set of concepts and a subtle account of the exercise of power that can apply to any governing system. The reader is likely to be much wiser from reading or rereading this classic work. Peter John European Political Science (2009) 8, 428 - 442
