Overview

Written specifically for undergraduate students by a leading scholar, teacher and writer this is the first major new textbook on British politics of the twenty-first century and the first fully to reflect the new multi-level character of governance in its organization and content. Its single authorship allows for fully integrated, even and consistent style and coverage while particular attention has been paid to presenting a range of interpretations and assessments rather than just one single point of view. A well-conceived range of features and illustrative material plus a website with a teachers' guide, OHP masters, a student guide, updated materials, and self-teaching questions complete the package.
