Overview

Bringing together a completely new set of specially-commissioned chapters by leading authorities, Developments in British Politics 7 provides an accessible state-of-the-art introduction to politics and political change in the UK. It provides a systematic assessment of New Labour in government focusing in particular on continuities and contrasts between its first and second terms and with traditional social democracy. A central innovation is the concept of multi-focal politics to explain the consequences of globalization, Europeanization and devolution for the nature and distribution of power in the UK.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Focuses on the extent to which globalization, devolution, and the impact of European integration have made multi-level governance a central characteristic of UK politics. Assesses what is "new" about New Labor, and discusses major changes in constitutional arrangements, government institutions, and public policy. The changing roles and character of media, political participation, citizenship, and culture are highlighted. A conclusion assesses the nature and challenges of policy-making in a multi-level polity. For undergraduate students. Dunleavy teaches government at the London School of Economics. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
